Auto page numbering, not sheet numbering

Recommended Posts

so after some figuring out I have a custom title block via sheet border, it works with VW sheet list and with my data based drawing list.  All three are linked and one changes the other with some prodding (double click, move and shake).  One more thing I need to figure out is how to get the sheet/page number in the set, not sheet number like A-100 but page in the set: 1 of 50.  Along with that the total number of pages in the set.  I can control it now via my data based spreadsheet but its a manual operation (a - change the spreadsheet numbers, then "shake" the title blocks and miracle happens).  

What I am asking is whether there is a Record Format script definition that can read VW sheet list and interact with it (like: S_Page No:_SN), I tried standard title block and none of the record formats seem to work to that effect.

Thanks for any insights

I wold also love to ave an Automatic Index Pages Number, as we have in Word or Pages. This would be a great help in projects with 50 drawing sheets. Any one could help us or at least give us any tip?
