    Word 2002 reviewer comments not numbered (Word 2002 (XP))

    One of the machines I use has Word 2002; another has Word 2003. I've noticed that when I use the reviewing feature to insert comments (whether showing balloons and whether showing the reviewing pane), in Word 2002, the comments show my initials but they aren't numbered; in Word 2003, my initials are there *and* the comments are numbered as I expected from even earlier versions of Word. In both cases, I've checked Tools/Options/User Information and Tools/Options/Track Changes, and all seems OK.
    Does anyone know whether the lack of numbering is a "feature" of Word 2002, whether there's a toggle I haven't found, or whether there's a problem in my edition of Word?
    Thanks.
    Dave

    Microsoft changed the way comments were displayed in Word 2002 compared to that in Word 2000 and before. Users didn't like it, so it was changed again in Word 2003. I don't see comment numbers in Word 2002 (SP3) either, so I assume it's a "feature".

    Ah, yes... Microsoft "features"... don't we just love 'em... <img src=/S/hairout.gif border=0 alt=hairout width=31 height=23>
    Thanks, though!

    p.s. I don't suppose you know of a kludge for this, apart from manually numbering them *after* I've finished editing/changing?

    I don't know of a another way, but I would leave it as it is - if you add numbers manually, the document will look weird when opened in another version of Word than 2002.
