This example is already stored in quicksets as "Forms Management Date Time(GER)/(US)" with Macro ID 25004 & 25005.

You can create dynamic macros which might print date and time to page-footer of the document.
In order to do this create a form which might look like this:

<esc>&f0X<esc>&fS
<esc>)10U<esc>)s1p10vsb4148T
<esc>&a2280h7920V
<HEX:0E>#DATENUM# - #ACTTIME#<HEX:0F>
<esc>&f1S<esc>&f1x10X

This PCL5 macro contains:

- The macro initialization sequence:

<esc>&f0X<esc>&fS

- Selection of the Codepage 10U and font 4148 (Univers)

<esc>)10U<esc>)s1p10vsb4148T

- Positioning sequence 2280 dots to the right and 7920 dots to the bottom:

<esc>&a2280h7920V

- Then the text with ELP variables:

#DATENUM# - #ACTTIME#

- Finally the closing of the macro:

<esc>&f1S<esc>&f1x10X

Important: Store this file as <MACRO_ID>.mac into the W-ELP forms folder. Your macro ID must be between 25000 and 30000. Example: 25004.mac

You can also edit the form 25004.mac or 25005.mac to change the text. Please use an advanced text editor like notepad++.
For moving the text you can adjust the positioning sequences.
Finally go for the test. You can add the form with the ELP_Command=C1F25004;

The configuration:

[GLOBAL]

ELP=ON

Macro_Download=ON

ELP_Command=C1F25004;
