    Multi-page InDesign data merge document with auto page numbering.

    RollDotHome Level 1

      I am trying to create an InDesign template to use to create mini catalogue/contact sheet with multiple records per page. It is set up and working well with one exception. I need auto page numbering and would have thought this would be straight forward enough.

       

       

      I have a page number box set up on the master page (Page A of 1) which works fine for static documents but when used with data merge it seems to behave oddly. I am out putting documents up to approximately 6 pages in length and it seems that pages 1-5 with all say 'Page 1 of 2' and page 6 will say 'Page 2 of 2'.

       

       

      Surely there must be a simple answer to this but I cannot get it to work. Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.
