To request that the value of a Break field be printed in a label placed in the Break area, use the number sign (#) in the label. For example, the text "Total salaries for department #" will insert the department name (in this case, the value of the Department field) in place of the number sign when the report is printed.

This is especially useful, for example, if you want a printed total for each department.
