    Paragraph settings (Word 2000)

    I need to format a paragraph containing an equation so that it is centred with a number on the right margin. If I set the paragraph alignment to "Centre" and set a right-aligned tab at 15 cm (the right margin) for the number, the equation is not centred but at the left margin. What settings should I use?

    I'd use left alignment, with a center tab halfway between the left and right margins, and a right-aligned tab at the right margin.
    Click to the left of the equation and press the Tab key to move the equation to the center tab.

    Yes, I usually use left alignment and tabs, too. Sometimes, tho, with larger or more complex equations, I'll build a little one-row table (with no borders showing when printed). One column has the equation(s), and the column to the right of it holds the number. This way I have some control over where the number falls in relation to the equation (e.g., aligned with the top of the equation, or the middle, or the bottom).
