Title: Sheet Titles and Background Borders
Post by: doone on September 22, 2017, 10:55:57 AM
Hi Everyone,

I know this topic has come up many times over the years, but I don’t think it has been truly solved yet (or least that I can find) for this scenario.  I need to have a title block/border on a Background page that will support different sheet titles and other info.  That is, each Page has its own unique title that can be rather lengthy.
I found this post where the poster needs the same thing I’m looking for, but he was able to solve the problem with VBA.  I would think there is a way to accomplish this strictly in the ShapeSheets.

The closest that I have gotten is to place =GUARD(Pages[Page-2]!ThePage!Prop.Sheet_Title) in the Background page.  The problem is that “Page-2” needs to dynamic – something like CurrentPage.

I’m tempted to just put a text box on each page with a field =GUARD(Prop.Sheet_Title) as a workaround.

Any ideas?
Thanks in advance.
