    Default Printing and Imposition question

    Hi,
    I have several problem with FM Pro 6.
    1. how many record I can print in one file (I have doent with 137501
    record and I can't print more then 32767 record-pages)
    2. Imposition records on page. I know how can I position record from
    left to right, or first up, second bellow first, third bellow second
    (this is standard in layout setup).
    I would like print 6 records on page but not in standard position, I
    would like to print in this order:
    1. step: first record is up, second is behind the first record, third
    record is behind the second... 1000 record is last,
    2.step: record 1001st is bellow the first (on same, first, page), then
    1002nd record is behind 1001st... till 2000 record is last
    3. step: now we have record number 2001 who is bellow 1001st record etc.
    etc.
    Now I have 1000 pages with 6 records on each page and this is 6000
    records.
    This order, is important for me, because when I cut records on knife, I
    get 6 parts of record who is sorted in order: from 1,2,3....1000, then
    from 1001,1002,1003...2000, then 2001,2002,2003...3000, then
    3001,3002,3003...4000, then 4001,4002,4003...5000, and from 5001...6000.

    My question is can I made all in FileMaker or I must combined FM with
    other programs (for imposition example)?

    If somebody know what I write pleas sent to me email.
    Thank You.

    P.S.
    Sorry on my bad English.

    No idea. That's a lot of pages...

    Add a number field called SortBy. Find and sort the records in the order
    you want them (1...6000). Use the Replace command to fill the SortBy field
    with the following calculated result:

    Mod (Status (CurrentRecordNumber) - 1, 1000)

    Now add SortBy to the top of your sort order and sort again.

    I would prefer to keep it in the group, if possible. That way there are
    many following along who can help you if I can't.

    Try to describe the problems you are having. I'm sure we can get through
    them and get your report working as needed. If that fails, you can email me
    at [email]schwandtgaol.com[/email], but keep in mind that it may be some time before I see
    it.
