    Using Numbering in Tables (Word 2000 SR-1)

    Is there a way of using automatic numbering in a Word table so that the numbering goes down not across. <img src=/S/hairout.gif border=0 alt=hairout width=31 height=23> eg.
    1.....4.....7
    2.....5.....8
    3.....6.....9

    Use a one column table and a section with 3 columns with 0" space between them?

    Thanks for that...I knew it wasn't going to be as straight forward as it looked. <img src=/S/bravo.gif border=0 alt=bravo width=16 height=30>

    Cheryl,

    I'm just catching up with my Woody Lounge email, after being on vacation for 2 weeks and then sick for 2 more (no the vacation didn't make me sick).

    I saw your post and wanted to see what the answers were. I only saw Jeff's. I wasn't sure what you were trying to do but here's an answer:
    - select the first col and just click on the numbering icon. This will number each cell in the first col so the rows go from 1 to n (n rows in the table)
    - select the 2nd col and choose Format | Bullets and Numbering. choose the numbering tab and the style that fits the first col. Now choose customize and set the Start At to be n+1 (4 in your example)
    - repeat for all cols.

    You may have to format the entries, depending on what you're trying to put in the cells.

    Another approach would be to use Excel to create numbers for whatever rows and cols you're trying to fill, select the range of cells and copy. Depending on what version of Word you're using would determine how to paste:
    - if Word 97, I think you can just select the top left cell and paste; you'll get one Excel cell per Word cell, which is what you want. I say "I think" bcs I'm here in the office with Word 2K (see next)
    - with Word 2K (and beyond?), you have to be careful.
    - If you select just the top left Word cell and paste, you'll get the entire Excel selection as an embedded table within the cell (look at the Edit menu).
    - if you select the Word table by rows, you'll get the Excel cells above the Word table. In fact, you just may want to use this and forget the word table. The Edit menu will show Paste Rows.
    if you select the Word table by cols, you'll get the same as Word 97 (1 Excel cell per Word cell). Edit menu shows Paste Cells.

    Hope this helps - even if a bit late.

    Fred

    Thanks for that...I thought I had fiddled around with all the likely possibilities. <img src=/S/bravo.gif border=0 alt=bravo width=16 height=30>

    Not quite automatic numbering, but the SEQ field works for me. Use three sequences and an interval of three.

    I'm attaching a document using such fields in a 4x20 sheet of labels.
