view cell content in header

Hi folks
Can I customise the header so the left section = the content of a cell
in the sheet eg A1.
All I seem to be able to do is add date, page etc etc..

You need some VBA code to do this:

You can use the workbook_beforeprint event to modify the header.

Option Explicit
Private Sub Workbook_BeforePrint(Cancel As Boolean)
    With Me.Worksheets("sheet1")
        .PageSetup.LeftHeader = .Range("a1").Text
    End With
End Sub

This goes behind the ThisWorkbook module.

Puzzled by HPPT post Request Headers not arriving
Problem with HTTP Request Headers I have an app that uses an HTTP Post to send some stuff to a server and get some data back. It works OK but I would like to save bandwidth by compressing the return data. My problem is that the header that I want to send, to allow compression on the server, is not being received by the server. I have patched the serverscript to reflect back the headers and neither of the header strings seems to have got there. The post string itself gets there, but the 'Accept-Encoding' header does not. Please, what am I doing wrong? The code that tries...

CSV file with 13space characters in blank cells
