Annotation positions
The Annotations collection always contains eight Annotation objects, each one of which corresponds to a position around the table. There are four “header” positions above the table: Title Header, Left Header, Center Header, and Right Header; and four “footer” positions below the table: Title Footer, Left Footer, Center Footer, and Right Footer. The following diagram shows these positions.
This graphic is described in the surrounding text.
The following table shows the constants and their associated values that you use to specify the various positions in your scripts. You can use the constant if your script is part of a data management script (.dms) file. If your script is a standalone .mrs file, you must use the numeric value or set up user-defined constants to represent the values (as shown in the Annotations.mrs sample).

You can set up the texts to be displayed in these positions for individual tables, as defaults to apply to new tables, or as global settings to apply to all of the tables in the table document.
