How do I get the Page numbers to automatically apply in a PDF 417 barcode?

Level 4
Level 4


I have a form that will be scanned and I need the pdf417 barcode to automatically generate the Page 1 of 12 or whatever the count will be. I have tried using global data with the "Pages" text but that hasn't worked. You can't make a Collection list with the floating fields of CurrentPage and PageCount so could someone please offer a suggestion as to how to accomplish this.

My form has two master pages so I have one of those barcodes on each page. Right now I'm just entering that information manually in the value field but I'm afraid I'll always forget to enter that information and when the form is set to expand as the user types in data, I won't know what the end number of pages will be.

I'm on time crunch to produce this form so I've posted this question in multiple places. Thanks for any help that can be offered.

Have you tried placing the "Page n of m" field in master page and then add its value to the Barcode?
