Using Headings, Footings, Titles, and Labels


After you have selected the data for a report, you can make it more meaningful by adding headings, footings, titles, and labels. Headings and footings supply key information, such as the purpose of a report and its audience. They also provide structure, helping the user navigate to the detail sought. Titles and labels identify individual pieces of data, ensuring correct interpretation. These components supply context for data and enhance the visual appeal of a report.
