    Custom dialog: Find Numbering (Word 2K or later)

    The attached template makes available a "Find Number" toolbar that contains a "Find Number" menu item - clicking on this displays a (surprise!) "Find Number" custom dialog which can be used to search a document for automatically numbered paragraphs, by number.

    You can copy/Organizer the toolbar and code into a template of your choice, or just load/unload this one as as add-in.

    Hope this proves useful (not to mention <img src=/S/cool.gif border=0 alt=cool width=15 height=15>).
    Posts back with problems, suggestions for improving etc. welcome.

    (Word 2K or later because the dialog is a modeless userform.)

    (Five minutes old, and it already needs fixing!):

    One change made to previous posting: this prevents the search from taking place if the textbox for typing in the number is left blank.

    Simply Superb, Gary!

    This was an occasional headache which we always got round manually.

    Thanks Rajesh!

    Having had a chance to think about how useful this could be (example: attorneys who work with lengthy contracts, and need to skip around from clause 1.2 to clause 20.3 to clause 47.8 - this could save them a lot of time), I'm wondering why no one produced one of these before (or maybe someone has, and we just don't know about it...)
