Using 'special fields' in 'formula fields' in Crystal Reports

Posted on 2007-10-02

I am localising a number of Crystal Reports XI
I have formula fields LLPage_Text and LLof_Text which will give me 'Page' and 'of' in English and the equivelant in other languages.
I want to combine these with special fields 'Page Number' and 'Total Page Count' to give me a localised version of 'Page N of M'.
Every attempt fails with 'unknown field'

    How are you combining them

    It should be something like

    {@LLPage_Text} & ' ' & ToText(PageNumber,0) & ' ' & ToText(TotalPageCount, 0)
