Wrong page numbering (Page 32 of 31) in MS Access 2003

I have a report which is generated from MS Access 2003.  It has existed for many years but now the page numbering has started to go wrong showing up as page 32 of 31.  There are no blank pages in the report.

The report is made up of a
Report Header
Page Header
GroupHeader 1 (this section contains a sub-report)
GroupHeader 2
GroupHeader 3 (this section contains a sub-report)
Detail
GroupFooter3
PageFoot (this is where the Page of Pages is located)
ReportFooter


The two sub-reports display images and are resized in code to match the current image.

Can anyone suggest what might be causing this behaviour and how I can fix it.

Is there any VBA code in any of the Section's Format events?  It looks to me like something is being miscalculated due to a "Retreat".  When the report is getting formatted the format event can run multiple times if it would flow over to a new page.  This causes a Retreat and then a new Format.  If something is Calculating either the current page or the max pages manually this would cause it to be in error.

I was going to ask the same thing; do you have any code that is adjusting the page numbers?

 You can avoid the retreat issue by making sure your checking the format/print count (depends which event your in) with:

 If FormatCount = 1 then
       Me.Page = 1
 End If

I am using the MS Access in-built [Page] and [Pages] fields to determine the number of pages.

The detail format section in the sub-report within the subreport on the GroupHeader1 section does run 3 times for each page but no calculation of current page or max page takes place.

 This is the issue....where are you doing the resizing?  Because of this, you may have to handle the page numbering yourself.

You were right, the problem lay in the resizing of the pictures, once I sorted that out the page numbering took care of itself.
