    Default Page Numbering Problem In Reports

    We are moving up from Ver5 to Ver6.

    Using Ver5 in any of our reports which had MORE than
    ONE column, we have never been able to
    use the System-"PageNumber variable since
    this appears to count the columns as page
    numbers.
    Thus a report with 3 columns is page numbered,
    0, 3, 6, 9 etc.

    (The System-"PageNumber is placed in a a
    Pagefooter region on the report.)

    We use workarounds with calculated fields - thus
    pageno = System-"PageNumber / 3
    for a 3 column report. The calculated field pageno
    is then placed in a pagefooter

    I'm sure we are missing something. Have searched the
    Ver5 postings and there are hints of the same problem but
    no answers.
    What will happen in Ver6?
    Does pagenumbering now work in the expected way?

    Don't have any experience doing what you describe in V6, and don't have time to create an example from scratch. Suggest you post a working model, and let us run in V6.
