Default Overflow page and page usage inquiry

I have a purchase summary statement that I'm creating that will always have at least 3 pages. On the third page I have a variable length table being generated from an external data file. I have an overflow page set up to allow the table to grow to how ever many pages it needs to. Each record needs to end up being an even number of pages, so a following record's first page doesn't show up on the back of it's previous record's last page during printing. (I hope I didn't lose anybody there.)
I have written this rule in the OnRecordStart to add a blank page if a record is an odd number of pages:
Code:
var pageCount = FusionPro.totalPages;

if(pageCount %2 != 0)
{
    FusionPro.Composition.SetBodyPageUsage("ExtraPage", true);
}
The rule seems to be working for records that are an odd number of pages. However when I compose a record that already has an even number of pages, it adds the overflow and the ExtraPage, thus giving me two blank pages when none are needed. Anybody have an idea why this is happening, and more importantly, how to resolve it? TIA.

Why not just set your "Overflow options" to add pages "So that last added page is even"?

Wow. I feel like an idiot and am completely embarrassed. Thank you for not roasting me Step. Is there a way to remove posts?

While we're on the subject, when I compose my first record, in the composition dialogue box I see a "Malformed Entity &4 in record 1" message.

When I compose the second record, I see two more "Malformed Entity" messages.

Any idea what these mean?

Well, first of all, we're not really "on the subject." As far as I can tell, this is a completely new question, unrelated to overflow pages. So this new question really should be a new thread.

They mean that, somewhere in your job, FusionPro is processing some text that has been presented to it as tagged markup, but ampersands in that text are not properly escaped as entities. You probably need to add a call to TaggedTextFromRaw in a rule that's returning tagged text. But without seeing the job, I can only guess.

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)});

The reason I thought it might be on the same subject as the overflow pages is because I've used overflow pages only one other time and I'd not seen that message before. Therefore I thought they were related. But thanks anyway for your response, I'll look into it. Thanks Step and Dan.
