      Summary

      Page number in header does not print as shown in preview

      Product

      FileMaker Pro

      Version

      FMPA 12.0v2

      Operating system version

      Mac OS X 10.7.4

      Description of the issue

      In both Browse mode and Preview mode, the {{PageNumber}} variable in the header shows Page 1 as being Page 1. However, when I actually print the page, it says Page 0. (And so on.)

      Steps to reproduce the problem

      Insert {{PageNumber}} variable in header. Try to print. Works every time.

      Expected result

      Whatever appears on screen in Preview mode should show up the same way on paper.

      Actual result

      see above

      Exact text of any error message(s) that appear

      no error message

      Configuration information

      The file was converted from .FP7 but otherwise seems to be working OK.

      Workaround

      Instead of inserting the page number using FMP native commands, use a merge form of a calculation field:

      If (
        Found > 20;
        " • Page " & Get ( PageNumber ) + 1 & " of " & Int ( Found / 20 ) + 1;
        ""
      )

      which includes artificially adding 1 to the page number.
