Default Formula Syntax Error in Footer

I am creating a training manual and I would like to have the even numbered
pages be numbered sequentially from 1 to 99 and beyond. I have found a lot
of great information on the discussion group but when I implement the
following formula in the footer, the formula shows up in the footer when
closed and I get a Syntax Error when I print the page out.

The formala that I am using is { = { PAGE } / 2 }

Does anyone have any suggestions on how I can get this to work?

Thanks!

Try { = { PAGE }/2 } and make sure that both sets of field delimiters (the
things that look like braces but can't be entered from the keyboard) are
inserted with Ctrl+F9.

Using Ctrl+F9 worked!

Now the problem that I am having is that in the even footer I have { =
{PAGE} / 2} set up and the numbering is working. In the odd footer, I would
like the page number to be the same as the previous even footer. How do I do
that?

Thanks!

Use { = ({PAGE} / 2) - .5 }
