Foormula for PageNumber to fix printing problem

Foormula for PageNumber to fix printing problem

Foormula for PageNumber to fix printing problem

Hi all.

I need to have my pages numbered. When I include the PageNumber in my report, it prints: 1,00 or 2,00 or 3,00 etc.. (note the , is printed as the . in english settings)

To avoid this problem I created a formula (maybe there is a better way to do that. If you know it, please tell me):

"Pg. " + ToText (PageNumber)[1 to (InStr (ToText (PageNumber), ",") - 1)]

Ok. now it prints 1 or 2 or 3 etc..


When I print from the web, it prints again 1,00 or 2,00 or 3,00

Why it happens ?

Do you know how to fix it ?

Please help me

RE: Foormula for PageNumber to fix printing problem

Try to place the page number special field inside of a text object and try to format it there. Please let me know if this works or not.

What if you use "Format Field" to remove the decimal places of the original page number.  This format setting should be stored with the report.

Great !

Got the solution:

Instead of using a formula, using the text field and including the special field in it.

Thanks all for helping me.

Anyway, still can't find out why sometimes , using the formula, it happens and sometimes no.

Well, doesn't matter.
