    I'm creating an invoice report that sometimes requires a group to continue for multiple pages.

    Is there a way within Report Designer to create a group-based page counter?

    For example:

    A report is 30 pages long but is split and page broken by a group.

    The page counter for each grouping should display the current page, along with the number of pages for that specific group. Something like "Page 2 of 4"

    Thanks! -Eric

    Hello Eric,

    Group-based page numbering is not supported out-of-the-box.

    If you use Standalone Designer to create TRDX|TRPD reports the designer needs to be extended with additional logic for resetting the page number per group (check the attached example).

    After the Designer is extended to use the external assembly with user function, you can use this function inside the reports to reset the page number per group.

    You can also check How to use external assemblies with custom user functions in the Report Designer KB article providing more detailed information on how to extend the Designer.
