section numbering



I have a document with three sections. I want to show pages X of Y using the
combined pages on section 1 and Section 2.

I then want to start fresh with section 3.

Is there a way to total the first two sections?

You could put a bookmark a the end of section 1 and another one at the end
of section 2 then use {PAGE} of {=({PAGEREF Bookmark1} + {PAGEREF
Bookmark2}) pages

You'd have to use a Master Document as a publishing gimmick, as
written in the magazine > word area, or muck around
with RD fields inside of section breaks.

Thanks, I think that will work the best. I did not want to go the route of
Master document after reading several of the other negative posts.
