Pg numbering, multiple sections, portrait and landscape


P

prmathis

I have a document that has 5 sections. The pages are numbered X of y. All
pages are portrait except the last page which is landscape. The page
numbering for the first three sections are separate from the last two. The
page numbering for the last two sections should continue from one section to
the next. I have been able to get Section 1, 2 and 3 to each show Page 1 of
1. I have been able to get Section 4 and 5 (3 pages total) to show Page 1, 2
and 3. However, have been unable to get the number of pages to display
correctly. I have linked Section 5 to the previous section. I have set it to
continue from the previous section. It still will not print 3 pages. I have
Work 2003.

Hello prmathis

I couldn't say I understand completely what you are dealing with; but it
seems you are using { PAGE } and { SECTIONPAGES } fields in your header
or footer.

If the "total" is not the actual amount of pages of one single section,
you'll have to calculate it. You could place a bookmark on the last page
of, say, section 4 (called: end4), and then insert a { PAGEREF } field
to get the amount of pages in section 4. Likewise for section 5.

Instead of the { SECTIONPAGES } field, you'll then need something like {
={ PAGEREF end4 }+{ PAGEREF end5 } }.
