Specify Fax Header Text for Top Line of Fax

$fax_header header [over]

This command is used to define a header line which is to be placed at the top of each transmitted fax page.

Important note: this command affects all outbound operations done with this user profile, including broadcasts and server operations, unless overridden for specific fax server or broadcast transmissions by a $fax_header command in the FS file, or by an assignment to one of the the FAX_HEADER_xx variables. For more information and examples, see the topic on configuring fax header lines.

The parameters on this command are used as follows:

header the header text to be used, enclosed in double quotes. The fax board may permit special escapes to insert variable data in this line, and you can also use CopiaFacts variables.
over a keyword indicating that the header line is to overlay the image instead of being placed above it (Brooktrout and Bladeware only)

Hardware Issues: Formatting escape characters are available as described in the CopiaFacts hardware-specific documentation, and on some boards you may also place the remote CSID in the header line as described in the Hardware section. The header is ignored on color fax transmissions on the TR1034 board.

To insert variable-length values in fixed positions, use the {w} syntax (where w is the width) immediately following the variable name to define the expansion width.

For Brooktrout TR1034 fax boards, and for BladeWare the sequence "|~|" in the header string separates the header text from that to be placed in the fax footer.

Default: none (optional feature)


$fax_header "Copia Intl 444 325 8888 @DATE1"

$fax_header "Please Deliver To: @ROUTETO"
