Topic: Page Numbering

Through VB, I am creating one PDF from multiple PDF files and am trying to put page numbering on each page. The way I have done it is to put a form on each page and sets it value to "Page X" where X is the current page number + 1 (zero based). See below for code snippet.
All is fine and well, and even looks great on the screen - my problems start when I attempt to print, it prints the form field INVERTED.
If I play around with the form field it will sometimes print correctly, but there seems to be no method to its madness.
Any Ideas?


For intLoop = 0 To intPageCount
Set objAcrFormsField = objAcrFormsFields.Add _("PageNumber" & CStr(intLoop + 1), "text", _
intLoop, 300, 1000, 400, 1100)

With objAcrFormsField
.TextSize = "14"
.TextFont = "Times-Roman"
.DefaultValue = "Page " & CStr(intLoop + 1)
.Value = "Page " & CStr(intLoop + 1)
End With

Next intLoop
