I normally use Repetition settings and use the horizontal and vertical layouts. My customer would like to print a raffle ticket on 8.5 x 11 but would like to print 7 up. 4 tickets on one side and 3 on the other. How would I manually layout each ticket and can I use the counter to number the tickets on each sheet from 1 to 7?

Any ideas?

Don't use repetition. Define 1 ticket. Copy/paste it in the layout that you want. Change each layout to use fields named like Ticket1, Ticket2, up to Ticket7. Create a data file with 7 fields (the aforementioned Ticket1-7) per record. Populate the data with the ticket numbers that you want. I.E. Record #1 has the values 1,2,3,4,5,6,7. Record #2 has 8,9,10,11,12,13,14. and so on....
