TechWhirl (TECHWR-L) is a resource for technical writing and technical communications professionals of all experience levels and in all industries to share their experiences and acquire information.
For two decades, technical communicators have turned to TechWhirl to ask and answer questions about the always-changing world of technical communications, such as tools, skills, career paths, methodologies, and emerging industries. The TechWhirl Archives and magazine, created for, by and about technical writers, offer a wealth of knowledge to everyone with an interest in any aspect of technical communications.
At the book level you can define the chapter numbering. Select the first
chapter. Right-click and select Numbering. Set the Chapter number to 1,
and the page number to 1.
Select the other chapters. Right-click and select Numbering. Set the
Chapter number to Continue from Previous. Set the Page numbering to one,
or continue, however you have your page numbering.
Then on the Master pages, use the $chapnum variable in your page
numbering. It will take the numbering you specified at the book level
and number appropriately.

Subject: Frame 7 variable
Re: The chapter number variable
I have a FrameMaker 7.0 question
I'd like to use a number variable in my running header and footer, but
has been appearing as a "1" throughout my body pages. Does the system
variable need to be defined another way, or do I need to be using BOOK
FORMAT to have it work properly?
Thanks for any help,
