I apologize in advance if question has already been asked and resolved in past topics but I have not found anything.

Here is my requirement for my BIRT 3.7 report (using run and output straight to PDF):

MasterPageA (instead of having Page 1 of 2, I am getting Page 1 of 3)
Page1

MasterPageA
Page2

MasterPageB
SummaryPage (always only one page)

I am using auto-text in the header of masterPage. My question is how can I have access to the total-page variable, so I can display in my masterPageA something like (total-page) - 1 ?

Any ideas are much appreciated.

Thanks

When you deploy this report how will you be running it?

It will be running using WebViewer with straight output to PDF.

When you run the report in the Viewer, if you run to html using the
frameset mapping and then export to pdf does the report come out
correctly? Also try frameset mapping with &__format=pdf appended to the
url.

I am using run mapping with &__format=pdf. Would frameset make a difference?

Yes, frameset uses a run task then a render task. run mapping uses
runandrender task, which does not create a rptdocument.
