    Page Numbers by Sub Summary Part

    FilemakerGal

      I am using Bruce Robertson's virtual list technique to print long documents. The client now wants to have the page numbering by section. I have found that with assigning a number to each record and then sorting on that field I can set up a sub-summary part that restarts the page numbering. So far so good, this gets me Page 1 etc... and when the next group is encountered the page numbering starts over.

       

      Now of course the client wants this to display Page 1 of 5 etc... the number of pages in the section, NOT the number of records but the number of pages per section. With the virtual list technique I have many records per page which are dynamic and I have been scratching my head to firgure out how to count the pages.

       

      If anyone can help I would really appreciate it.
