Topic: Placing Page # of # on a page

I need to place "Page # of ##" (where # is the current page and ## is the total pages) as a label at the bottom of each page of my pdf. The pdf will have templates so I will not know the exact page # of each template or total pages of the pdf until the pdf is opened by a fdf file. The fdf will have information as to what and how many templates to spawn.

I am setting the page number of each page on "Page Open" using "Document\Set Page Action". I place the # and ## value in seperate text fields and have "Page" and "of" as labels. This seems to work OK for the current page #. But the total page number seems to be including unopened templates in it's total. I only want to show the total used pages in the total page field. Do I use some other property than "numPages"? Any other ideas? Thanks in advance for your help. Dan M.
