Hi All,

I am trying to get the page number reset on change of a patient_id. I have a report which runs in to 2 to 3 pages per patient but there are cases where the pages are just one per patient.  I followed the eg in the Microsoft knoledge base article http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;306127

I have followed the steps as per the document but the page number does not get set correctly. If i step through the code the number of pages in the grp is shown correctly but when it displays the report it is wrong. for eg if i have one page report it shows number of pages as 2..

Here is the code i have so far


Option Compare Database
Option Explicit
Dim GrpPages As Recordset

Private Sub GroupHeader1_Format(Cancel As Integer, FormatCount As Integer)
' Set page number to 1 when a new group starts.

    Page = 1

End Sub


Public Function GetGrpPages()
GrpPages.Seek "=", Me![Text27]
If Not GrpPages.NoMatch Then
    ' GetGrpPages = "Page " & Me.Page & " of " & GrpPages![PageNumber]
     GetGrpPages = GrpPages![PageNumber]
End If

End Function

Private Sub PageFooterSection_Format(Cancel As Integer, FormatCount As Integer)
GetGrpPages
'GrpPages.Seek "=", Trim(Me!Text27)
If Not GrpPages.NoMatch Then
    If GrpPages![PageNumber] < Me.Page Then
        GrpPages.Edit
        GrpPages![PageNumber] = Me.Page
        GrpPages.Update
    End If
Else
    On Error GoTo ErrHandler
    GrpPages.AddNew
    GrpPages![Categoryname] = Me![Text27]
    GrpPages![PageNumber] = Me.Page
    GrpPages.Update
End If
GetGrpPages
ErrHandler:
If Err.Number <> 0 Then
    MsgBox Err.Number & ":  " & Err.description
    Err.Clear
    Exit Sub
End If
End Sub

Private Sub Report_Open(Cancel As Integer)
    CurrentDb.Execute "delete * from [CategoryGroupPages];", 0
    Set GrpPages = CurrentDb.OpenRecordset("CategoryGroupPages")
    GrpPages.Index = "primarykey"
End Sub

Category Group Pages is a table created in Access with Category Name and PageNumber as fields in the report with category name as PK.

Any tip to solve this issue is highly appreciated

Thanks

hmm... I'll check on this.  I used this exact same MSKB and it worked for me wonderfully.
