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.

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,
