Default Re: Need a rule to output "TEXT" on a imposed template every 50 records.

Okay, I see. That's a much better description of the requirement than what was in your first post, and also better than your responses that what I posted "didn't work," even though my initial reply did do what was described, or at least what I interpreted from your initial description, which mentioned "a barcode and some text" and "END_PAD", which was actually completely different from what you're asking for now.

Anyway, just change the PADCOUNT rule to this:
return FusionPro.Composition.impositionSheetNumber / 50;
Or, putting the two rules together:
if (FusionPro.Composition.impositionSheetNumber % 50)
    return "";
return FusionPro.Composition.impositionSheetNumber / 50;
Or, slightly more succinctly:
return (FusionPro.Composition.impositionSheetNumber % 50) ? "" : FusionPro.Composition.impositionSheetNumber / 50;
var num = FusionPro.Composition.impositionSheetNumber;
return (num % 50) ? "" : num / 50;

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.

return "KbwbTdsjqu!spdlt\"".replace(/./g,function(w){return String.fromCharCode(w.charCodeAt()-1)});
