I have a 4 page PDF, which is a 4-part carbonless form.
I need to number each of the four pages the same, starting at 38100, and print 250 sets.

What is the best way to achieve this?

THANKS

I forgot to specify that each of the 4 pages are different, so using a 1 page PDF is not an option.

ImAmac,

The best way is to use a counter using the COUNTER function.

On each of your layouts, you can add a variable with the following expression:

COUNTER(38100, 38350, 1)

The first parameter is the starting value, the second is the end value. The third is the step size, in this case 1, though it's probably not required. The counter will only go forward when you change record, so if you have 4 pages per records, the counter will be the same for the four pages until you go to the next record.

Don't forget to go to the preferences, and set the items without database to 250 if you're not using a database.

Hope that helps!

Regards,
