How to get "page x of y" on a report by mgagnon
Posted: 20 Dec 02 (Edited 6 May 03)

Create a textbox in the footer of the report and put the following in it:

 'Page ' + ALLTRIM(STR(_PAGENO)) + ' of '+ ALLTRIM(STR(pnPages))


To print the report and get a page count you need to print it twice, once to a temporary file and the second time to the printer:

PRIVATE pnPages
LOCAL lcfile
lcFile = SYS(3)+".tmp"
lnHandle = FCREATE(lcFile)
FCLOSE (lnHandle)
WAIT WINDOW 'Calculating Page Count...' NOWAIT
REPORT FORM &cRepName TO FILE (m.lcfile) NOCONSOLE
ERASE (m.lcfile)
pnpages = _PAGENO
WAIT CLEAR
REPORT FORM &cRepName TO PRINTER PROMPT PREVIEW
RETURN
