How Do I Start the Page Numbering on the Second Page in Crystal Reports?

I have had a number of clients recently ask me "How do I start the page numbering on the second page of the report, displaying Page 1, in Crystal Reports?"


  1. Create a formula, with the following syntax:

            "Page - "&
    PageNumber - 1

  2. Add the formula field to the required required page section

  3. Right click on the {@Page Number} formula field

  4. Select the Format Field menu option

  5. In the Format Field dialog box, click on the Common tab

  6. Press the conditional formatting button [x + 2] for the Supress formatting option

  7. In the Formula Workshop enter the following syntax:

              PageNumber = 1

  8. Press the Save and Close button
