CaseWare Working Papers | What to do when the note header is not carrying forward to the next page?

Published:  21/11/2016
When content of my note goes over 1 page then my note heading does not display on the subsequent page or displays the incorrect note heading, how do I resolve this?
For example the carry forward header should be as follows:

The reason this would happen is because there is no carry forward header selected or the incorrect carry forward header is selected.

Please note the following steps can only be performed in Design Mode:
  1. Go to the section where the carry forward header is not printing or not printing correctly.
  2. Right click on the section and select Paragraph | Section
  3. Click on the Modify button and then select the Carry Forward Totals tab.

Here you will be able to see if carry forward headers and footers have been enabled and if there is a carry forward header attached.
If the incorrect header or there is no carry forward header is selected. Proceed to perform the following steps below:
