Also, the product isn't tickets, but it's close.
Sounds interesting!

Sure, you can move pages around in any PDF in Acrobat, with the Page Thumbnails panel, or with the Organize Pages tool:

The pages in each record in the FusionPro output are in the same order as in the template PDF. So all you need to do is move that "CoverBack" page to be the second page in the template, between the Cover and Ticket pages.

No, that requires a bit more math.

Thanks! That's helpful.

I've rearranged the pages as mentioned, and added code to output the ticket ranges for each book.

How To Ask Questions The Smart Way

The correct spellings are JavaScript, FusionPro, and MarcomCentral (each with two capital letters and no spaces). Acceptable abbreviations are JS, FP, and MC (or MCC). There is no "S" at the end of "Expression" or "Printable"! The name of the product is FusionPro, not "Fusion". "Java" is not is not the same as JavaScript.

Check out the JavaScript Guide and JavaScript Reference! FusionPro 8.0 and newer use JavaScript 1.7. Older versions use JavaScript 1.5.
