You can use a variable to show top n. Remember to page on the the chart with top n values.
The attached project will allow you to set the value of variable vTopN in the QVW or in an NPrinting Variable Filter to any value and restrict the output accordingly. As you can see, the alphabetic sorting on SalesPerson is also retained. I have disabled the variable filter but you can always enable it and test with different values.
Extract to folder C:\Temp\Community\037 to retain the paths used or change them in the NSQ.

Thanks again for your guidance. I was doing most of what you suggested but I was missing one thing and it took me hours to figure it out. I was trying to add my individual field name as the page and it kept cycling through the whole list ignoring the vTopN variable setting. I then sat and really analyzed the settings in your example and figured out that I had to add my chart to the page and then I could select my field. As soon as I did this, it worked.
So, paging works fine with individual field name if you want all of the records, but if you want to take advantage of Top N using dimension limits, it seems you have to specify the chart in the page.
Along the way, I also figured out that exporting straight tables of data takes significantly less memory and file storage space than images. Although, I am fond of my image exports, for apps that require several hundred pages or more, I am going to adapt to tables for output.
Thanks for going the extra mile and sending me the example files, they were a huge help!
