how to set page numbers in a multi-file document

I'm editing a multi-file document that requires <title page="" x="" of="" y=""> in the header. I read the documentation about how to set an offset for the page number, but I can't get it to work consistently. About the first 6-8 of the document show the incrementing page numbers, and after that, the header shows <title page="" of="" y="">.

There is only 1 header in each file. No footers. It's not a complicated document, other than the fact that it's about 500 pages long and thus has to be divided into multiple files. I can't figure out why setting the offset under Insert -> Field -> Other -> Variables -> Set page variable doesn't work. Any solutions for this problem?
