I'm using metadata to get the page counts in a document, but instead of "Page 1 of 10" I'd like to pad the numbering with two zeros - "Page 001 of 010" etc...
I see how to do that in a data selection and presstalk but I'm having a hard time finding how to implement it when using metadata.

=GetMeta('SelectedIndexInDocument[0]', 1, 'Job.Group.Document.DataPage')+' of ' + GetMeta('SelectedCount[0]', 1, 'Job.Group.Document')

Try this:

=right('00'+GetMeta('SelectedIndexInDocument[0]', 1, 'Job.Group.Document.DataPage'),3)+ ' of ' + right('00'+GetMeta('SelectedPageCount[0]', 1, 'Job.Group'),3)
