Restarting page numbers part way through report


Board Regular
Jan 4, 2006
Hi folks,
We have a report which consists of 10 sheets. Several of the sheets may vary in the number of pages that print. For example sheet 4 in the series may print 1 or up to 5 pages (varies with each report). For example:

Sheet 1 - 1 page
Sheet 2 - 1 page
Sheet 3 - 1 or 2 pages
Sheet 4 - 1 or 2 pages
Sheet 5 - 1 to 4 pages
Sheet 6 - 1 page
External pages (6) inserted after print run
Sheet 7 - 1 or 6 pages
Sheet 8 - 1 page
Sheet 9 - 1 page
Sheet 10 - 1 or 8 pages

The problem I have is that after printing 6 pages from an external source are collated into the printed product. These external pages are inserted after sheet 5. What I want to try and do is have sheet 6 start at the last page number on sheet 5 + 6. That is, sheets 1 - 5 may be 8 pages. Add in the external 6 pages and so sheet 6 needs to start at page 15.

It would be really good if the total number of pages could also stay aligned (e.g. page 15 of 25)

I have tried resetting the numbers but looking for a way to automate.
