MS ACCESS:  Report page numbers

willsherwood asked
Last Modified: 2013-11-28
1. Is there any built-in way (other than custom VB code) to set the starting page number for a report?
A client has three reports that she consecutively/contiguously spews out to a PDF file, and she ends up having to not use ACCESS page numbers and insert page numbers in Acrobat.

2. In this same 3-report document, the first report is a summary (table of contents as such) listing of the records, which lists the page number the detail records are displayed.  She does this manually in acrobat(!)
I assume there's no way other than a combination of pre-running the detail reports to UPDATE their own record to capture what page they ended up on, and then use that (new) field to print in the table of contents.
(It's actually a little more complicated, in that the detailed records can appear on multiple pages, thus I would guess a X-product (relational) side table is needed to record each page # listing in new records, and then have custom code to list (multiple) page numbers in the TOC)
