1212991 - How to display the total page count on the Crystal Reports viewer toolbar

Symptom

An application uses the Crystal Reports viewer (CRViewer) to view a report at runtime. When you initially preview a report, the toolbar in the CRViewer displays page 1 of 1+.

How do you display the total page count when you initially preview a report? For example, if you have a report that is ten pages and you would you see page 1 of 10 on the toolbar.

Environment

  • Crystal Reports 2008

Resolution

To display the total page count on the toolbar do the following:
  1. In the Crystal Report designer, click the Insert menu and then click Field Object .
  2. Expand Special Fields in the Field Explorer.
  3. Insert the Page N of M field in the Report Header.
  4. Suppress the Page N of M field (if you do not want it seen).

NOTE

By inserting the Page N of M special field onto the report, you force Crystal Reports to process all pages in the report. This results in the total page count displaying on the toolbar.
