I would suggest that you do it in the template instead of individual report, so that all your Cognos reports referring to the template will be affected by the change.
Open the template in Report Studio, then you could use 'Image' and 'Page Number' on the Toolbox to show your company logo and page no.. One example is the report template referenced by our OOTB reports.
Regarding how to specify the image to your own picture, please finding that in Cognos help.

OOTB reports - out of the box reports. These are the reports bundled with RRDI.

Yes, out of the box reports shipped with RQM build. I think you are using RQM 2.x with RCR, so the OOTB reports package should be in a folder of installed RQM directory (Please refer to 2.x document, I do not remember the exact folder name), not as downloading from CLM web in 3.x. Then importing the report zip into RCR server.

Am using RQM 3.0.1 WITH RCR..
1)I opened report studio->create new report or template->report template...
In the header i put the image logo in one side and the textbox in the other side to write the test plan name.But when i clicked in the image to browse the company logo it;s showing 404:not found and 501:not implemented errors...why it's showing this error?
2)In the footer i wanted to get project name keyword and document no. in one colume and in 2 rows....and the name and no in the next column in two rows..and page number in the next column..ie like this..

Hello Archana,

for your information RCR does not support RQM 3.0.1.

For RQM 3.0.1 you should use Rational Reporting for Development Intelligence 1.0.2 instead.

Migration instructions are available here: Migrating Rational Common Reporting to Rational Reporting for Development Intelligence

Best Regards
Francesco
