Page numbering starting on second page

When creating a memo type report, you may not want the page number to be displayed/started on the first page.

The following example will demonstrate how to suppress the page number on the first page, while starting the page count on page 2. Page #2 will start with a page number of 1.

1) Create the following formula named ‘PageNumber’ and place it in your page footer:

PageNumber – 1

2) Right click on your formula in the page footer, Click on Format Field, Click on the Common Tab, Click on ‘X-2′ to the right of ‘Suppress’ and enter in the following:

{PageNumber} = 0

Refresh your report. You will not notice that the page count now begins on page #2
