if i understand it right, you want to generate the page numbers  
through your new document, and place the "datasheet" pages on top of  

it's still possible to do that with pdfpages as well. pdfpages by  
default uses \thispagestyle{empty} for every page where it includes a  
pdf. to suppress that and keep the page number of your new document use


(and only \usepackage{pdfpages} in the preamble as others have  
pointed out).
