Property Value

HeaderAutoText setting that specifies what appears for text in the header


The automatic text is the text automatically assigned to header cells by Spread. Use this property to change the automatic text to blank or to letters.

If your header has multiple row header columns, you can specify which header column displays the automatic text by setting the AutoTextIndex property.

This property does not have an effect unless the Visible property (or the SheetView RowHeaderVisible property) is set to true and the row header columns are not hidden.

For more information about automatic text, see Customizing the Default Header Labels.


This example specifies that letters be displayed in the third row header.
