    For Each oSheet In ThisWorkbook.Worksheets
        Dim oPageSetup As PageSetup
        Set oPageSetup = oSheet.PageSetup
        'Set footer
        oPageSetup.LeftFooter = "Total Products Counts : " & oSheet.Range("CountProd").Value
        'Memory cleanup
        Set oPageSetup = Nothing
    Next oSheet
    'Memory cleanup
    Set oSheet = Nothing
