I am trying to creatie a layout to print 2 interlinked projects at the same time. I added the variable [project_name] to the header section of the lay out in Page Setup. When I go to Print Preview, the name of project B shows up in the header instead of the name of project A. I have made project A the Default Project, project A is before project B in the WBS, both projects are open when I click print preview, the project ID of project A is numerically smaller than the project ID of project B, and project A has an actual and planned start before project B.  My only thought is that Project B was created before Project A. If this is the reason project B is appearing in the header instead of project A, I cannot think of a way to fix this.

What do I need to do to make the project name of project A appear in the header instead of project B? I am trying to not manually type the project name into the header because I have multiple 2 project schedules I want to use this layout with.

Thank you.

Zoltan,

Thank you for the quick response. I changed the name of Project A so it starts with an earlier letter in the alphabet than the project name for Project B. I am still having the same problem where Project B title is showing up in the header instead of Project A.

Please let me know if you have any other ideas for me to try.

Thank you for your help.

everything is Aplha numeric. So change the name of project and make the name of the project start with an earlier letter in the alphabit than the project name for project B.
