Hello, I find it pretty confusing that you specified you are transforming in XML or PDF. Do you mean HTML or PDF? In case you are working with XML, which specific language are you using? Are your XML documents in one of the most common XML document types (DITA / DocBook)? Could you try publishing on...

Re: Adding Additional Info in Footer

Hi santhudev123,

It is pretty difficult to mind the structure of your source files.
For example, it is not clear how and where you store strings like "3EHW 411401".

Also, we need more details on the "format-numbering()" function. Is it a custom one?
