Default Page numbering special request

I'd like to use two page numbers in the header of each section of a document. One will be the page within the section, starting with 1, which is easy enough. However, I can't figure out how to also include the number of the page as continuously numbered from the beginning of the document as well.



For example, Section 3 will start with Page 1, but might be page 23 of the document, which I would also like to display. Is there, perhaps of modification of the NUMPAGES field? I have found instructions for using a bookmark at the end of the document for a reference field, but it doesn't seem to be what I'm looking for.

Thanks for any assistance.

Hi Ulodesk,

The simplest way of doing this, is to use a SET field in each Section to create a bookmark that records the SECTIONPAGES value for that Section. Thus you might have:
{SET Sctn1 {SECTIONPAGES}}
Then, for the continuous page numbering in Section 2, you'd use a field coded as:
{={PAGE}+Sctn1 \# 0}
Naturally, you'd need to have the headers for Sections 1 & 2 unlinked.

If you've got 3 or more Sections, the SET field's bookmark needs to increment. So you could use a field coded as:
{SET Sctn{SECTION} {SECTIONPAGES}}
and, in Section 3's header (again unlinked) you'd use something like:
{={PAGE}+Sctn1+Sectn2 \# 0}
and so on (eg {={PAGE}+Sctn1+Sectn2+Sctn3+Sectn4 \# 0})
