I'm trying to change the start number from 1 to 500. I know how to do it manually Page/Section check the Section Start and change the number to 500. I having trouble doing that with applescript.
If someone could point me in the correct direction or give an example that would be much appreciated.
Thank you

2 things (excerpt from AppleEventsScripting.pdf):

1. Pages are numbered according to their absolute page numbers rather than section page numbers.
The Apple events implementation in QuarkXPress does not currently support the following:
• Long-document features: Books, libraries, lists, indexing, and section page numbers
• Text: Editing auxiliary dictionaries and hyphenation exceptions
• Pictures: Editing clipping paths
• Items: Merge/split functions, box creation default settings, and anchored boxes
• Color and printing: Multi-Ink colors, Hexachrome® colors, print styles, and the PPD Manager
• XTensions Manager and most QuarkXTensions® software distributed by Quark
