Hi all, my requirement seems to be simple enough, but still being a beginner at Adobe forms, this seems daunting to me, the requirement is, I am using a nested structure to print output that are then broken by conditional break feature.

So if my header structure has 5 document, I will get atleast a page output, now I need the
page number component( "page n of m" which I dragged and dropped) to reflect the page break, that is if there are a total of 10 page output and the first document flows for 2 pages, I need the page numbering to start from 1 of 2 for the first document, 1 of # for the second ... and so on.

All your inputs are valued, kindly help me on this requirement or point me in the correct direction, my search so far has been in vain

The search for such a requirement only results in Smartform based solutions , or calling my Adobe form inside a loop..and setting the page number as an exporting parameter from the second FM call inside the loop, this solution won't do for me cause I have included conditional page break based on document number to avoid user clicking the next button for each of the forms..

I know there must be a simple enough solution for this, as this is simple requirement, but I seem to have hit a brick wall and can't get past it.

To simply, my requirement is the same as this question:
