This function adds a page header to the report. The page header will appear at the top of each page of the report.

page_header(x, left = "", right = "", blank_row = "none")

## Arguments

x The report object. The left page header text. May be a single string or a vector of strings. The right page header text. May be a single string or a vector of strings. Whether to create a blank row below the page header. Valid values are 'below' and 'none'. Default is 'none'.

## Value

The modified report specification.

## Details

The page header may contain text on the left or right. Use the appropriate parameters to specify the desired text. Only one page header is allowed on a report. The page header will be repeated on every page of the report. Multiple text values for each side may be specified as a vector of strings.

If the width of the page header string exceeds the available space, an error will be generated. There is also a limit of 5 page header strings per each side.

There are two special tokens to generate page numbers: [pg] and [tpg]. Use [pg] to indicate the current page number. Use [tpg] to indicate the total number of pages in the report. These tokens may be placed anywhere in the page header or page footer.

Each header string must fit within the available space. The reporter package will not wrap headers. If a header string does not fit within the available space, an error will be generated. In these situations, either shorten the header string or split it into multiple headers that each fit within the available space.
