Project 2013 Print Header Text Font change RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello All,

         I am working in MS Project 2013 and am setting up the printing macro's I need for my shutdowns. There are 30 different filters to print so I need to make this as automatic as possible.

    I can setup all the parts I need in vba accept the Header Font.

    I can add the text using vba but for the life of me I can't work out how to change the font.

    I currently have the code so that the Page setup opens after adding the text and I change the font manually.

    Does anyone have the code for me to do this?

    I would also like to be able to set the printer properties to print in colour (Our company has set the printers to default B&W print) and staple the top left corner but these arent an issue as they are only done once.


    Sub AHRENS_Print()

    'Add Filter
        FilterApply Name:="AHRENS"

    'Page Setup Header Settings

    FilePageSetupHeader Alignment:=pjCenter, Text:="AHRENS"
    Font32Ex Name:="Tahoma", Size:=16, Bold:=True, Underline:=True, Color:=pjBlue


    FilePrint (3)

  • Frustrated,

    Unfortunately the FilePageSetupHeader Method does not provide a direct means for setting font color. In your code snippet, the Font32Ex Method essentially applies to nothing.

    However there supposedly is a way to insert an image in the header via a text format code but so far I've been unable to "decode" the proper code syntax to actually insert an image. Hopefully someone else will step in with the magic syntax.

  • Thanks You for your reply. It is very much appreciated.

    I had a sneaky suspicion this may be the case.
