The information in this article applies to:

  • Microsoft FoxPro for MS-DOS, versions 1.02, 2.0, 2.5x, 2.6x

SUMMARY

To print a report with a footer that has a "Page # of #" format, you must use a user-defined function (UDF), as explained below.


MORE INFORMATION

Include the variable in the report where it is required: for instance, on the report layout, the footer would contain:

Page _PAGENO of _TOTPGS 

where _TOTPGS is the variable.

Run the following code before the actual printing of the REPORT FORM statement, and you have the desired results:

***  Start code
_TOTPGS=0
REPORT FORM reportname RANGE 9000
_TOTPGS=_pageno
***  End code
