    Page X of Y, with Y customized (2000 SR-1)

    The document is eight physical pages. Those eight pages include a Title Page and a blank page created with an Odd Page Section Break. Neither of these two pages will be numbered nor counted.

    Therefore, beginning with the first page of the document following the blank page, the page numbering should read: Page 1 of 6, Page 2 of 6, etc. How do I achieve the "6" (Y value)?

    Hi, Phil!

    It worked for me just as you said. I appreciate the addendum information. Thanks for such a quick response; I can now wrap up this project in about five more minutes.

    Hello Phil,

    I tried typing in the {=numpages-2} and when I pressed shift+F9 to see the result, I got this:
    !Undefined Bookmark, NUMPAGES

    What did I do wrong?

    Hi Bob:
    Thanks for bringing this to my attention. I typed too quickly. <img src=/S/stupidme.gif border=0 alt=stupidme width=30 height=30>

    It should be:
    {={numpages} -2}

    i.e. {numpages} itself is a field. I've corrected the original.

    <P ID="edit" class=small>(Edited by Phil Rabichow on 09-Jul-03 11:50. to add Addendum & to correct typing mistake where {=numpages-2} should be {={numpages}-2})</P>Hi Diane:
    Use the following field, where the brackets are inserted with Ctrl+F9:

    {={NUMPAGES}-2}

    Addendum:
    If you will have no more sections in your document, & since the Title page & blank page are in a different section, you could just use:

    {SECTIONPAGES}

    which should have the value of 6 (at this point).
    Cheers,
