Default "ReportItems" collection re header/footer

On page 270 of the book, in a section entitled "Working with the strengths and limitations of the architecture", there is a table that enumerates many of the limitations and offers workarounds and alternatives.

For the limitation "Page header and footer cannot reference field values", one of the alternatives offered is "Place hidden text boxes in the report body and then reference these in the ReportItems collection".

That's it -- nothing else. A check of the index shows no further references to "ReportItems collection".

I presume this is done as custom code or in the "code" box?

How exactly would this be done?
