Sequential Segmentation Event

What I Am Trying To Accomplish:

I am trying to find a way where I can create a segment that in theory counts the amount of times a user navigates from one page to another, and then produce a report that shows how many times this event and/or navigation sequence occurred globally

Where I Am Having Trouble:

Creating a metric that shows how many times this event occurred, as opposed to how many visits succeeded in this navigation sequence. I'm finding that this segment is only capturing if someone succeeded in this completing this navigation sequence. So if someone completed this navigation sequence twice my only source of data would show that a visitor completed this sequence, as opposed that this sequence was completed twice.

Below is a table is the logic of what I am observing. This navigation sequence may have occurred 4 times, but i am only able to capture the data that shows that this navigation sequence occurred in a visit, as opposed to how many times this navigation sequence occurred regardless of the visit.

If you have a variable set up to capture the previous page value, then you can identify each individual hit where someone has gone from page A to page B (Segment to show hits where Previous Page = Page A and Page = Page B)

This solution will only work if you have an eVar (or prop) capturing the previous page value (easiest solution is using the s.getPreviousValue plugin)

Then your segment would look like this

HIT

Previous Page (eVarX) = Page A

AND

Page = Page B

Thank you for the solution! Would you be able to write out how i would setup this segment? I am having trouble conceptualizing how this will work.
