I haven't done it, but, according to the book, the Page Count variable 
(<$lastpagenum>), without the parens, should work.
Try putting that in your footer, or wherever on the cover, and see what it 
gives you.
You should be able to put it anywhere, except on a Master Page.

Subject: Total Page Count on Title Page

Hi all,

My manager requested that I add a total page count on the title page for
a book and I'm running into a hitch. FM help file shows a way to do this
with consecutive numbering for each chapter, but we use modified
MIL-Spec here - i.e., each page number consists of a chapter and the
page number, and restarts for each chapter. Any suggestions? I'm using
Frame 7.1 if that matters.
