Oh.  Actually If I put [NumPages] in format features, I will get the number of pages in the entire document, which is not the goal.  The goal is to get the total number of pages in all the documents, so i am trying to put [NumPages] in collect.cfg as given below:

collectionmeta    collectionextra [l=en] "
No of Pages: [NumPages]
"

Actually I want to give the total no of pages in the entire collection at About Page of this collection.

Hello Ata,

Can you see it in the gli's enrich panel (ex.NumPages ) ? Where did you put
[NumPages]? It should go into a format statement (gli->format) not macros
files. Please ignore _1_ and pages as they have nothing to do with the
number of pages.
