Page numbering x of y - y not limiting to section pages

Hello,
I have a small document that I've subdivided into 2 sections. 1st section - n
page numbering, no problems - 1 page total. 2nd section starts page numbering a
1 from 1st page correctly. I've used the Page x of y option in the footer an
want Y to equal number of pages in section 2 only, i.e. 10 pages. However, the
number of pages includes the total pages for the document (11 pages) - include
number of pages in section 1. How do i correct for only the number of pages i
section 2 - 10 pages? I've tested that Y has included number of pages in sectio
1 by increasing number of pages in section 1 and watching the Y value increas
accordingly.

Use the SectionPages field code, not NumPages
