for our company reports I need to print the invoice/quotation number in the header. My first try was to put the header to the body, where I can print the number, but than I get many other problems so this way is no solution.

Here I talk about how I use it to put elements in the header


Hello Axel, we are using QWeb for our reports, not RML. So this won't work I guess.

As I already wrote, because of some problems we can't put the headers in the "body". We are using two different headers, disabling one of them on the first page, the other on the nth page, realized with JS. If we now put the headers in the "body", the JS doesn't work anymore, so both headers are printed. Because of that they need to be in the real header template.
