I am trying to set various table header strings above the chart, but it looks like the documentation does not match the chart table.
I am using QCSPCChart+ 3.6.
The documentation describes the following position of the strings in the table:
Title - Part No - Chart No -
Part Name - Operation - Spec. Limits - Units
Operator - Machine - Gauge - Zero Equals
Date - - -
But when I render the chart table (e.g. SPCExampleScriptsR36.html, Enhanced Annotations chart), then the position of the strings are different (Part No, Gauge), and certain strings (for example Operation) are not even shown.
Am I missing to set some property in the configuration, or is the documentation out of date?
In case of the latter, can you provide an overview of the available header strings and their position?
I assume the available header strings and position are independent of the chart type. Is that correct?
On page 212 in the documentation there is also the starting of a sentence "Special Note. Rather than change the header string using", but it is not finished. Could you provide the complete sentence here?

We removed a couple of field, like Operation from the Input Strings as extraneous and repositioned the rest for a more uniform, look. Sorry that the manual wasn't updated to reflect it. The NotesMessage as an explicit field was removed, but you can add whatever note you want using the DateString field, which can span the entire width of the chart.
"DateString": "7/04/2013 Note: Control limits prepared May 10",

I see that the forum removed the additional white spaces that I added to show the position of the string, when summing up the table string, which makes the positioning a little bit less clear I guess.
It is not an issue with the HeaderStringsLevel. I have tried all settings 0-3, and for none of them the Operation is showing.
Can you also tell me where the NotesMessage is supposed to show? I have tried all HeaderStringsLevel settings, but I don't see it anywhere showing in the table or chart.

It sounds like you are not changing the default HeaderStringLevel, which is described in the manual, Chapter 6, SPC Data Table Setup.
The default is HEADER_STRINGS_LEVEL1, but you can set it to levels between 0 and 3. See the manual for which items are included at each level.
Yes, the table header strings are independent of the chart type.
"Special Note. Rather than change the header string using" the TableSetup properties, you can change the strings using the Static Property Initialization described in Chapter 4.
