    LISTNUM \s {REF SomeNumber}

    NM, I got it. I wasn't updating fields prior to testing. OP is left below.



    Can this be done? If so, I can't get it to work.

    I need the template to start numbering based upon an integer which is known only at merge time. I have the integer, but it's not working with the \s switch.

    Any other suggestions would be appreciated.

    Jeff, your post seems to be from the middle of a thread, yet it also seems to be your first post in the Lounge. Also, I don't see anything "left below."

    Are you trying to pass a value to it using the REF field? If so, I think you need the \f switch. I just tried this with "SomeNumber" referencing a bookmark around the text 15 -- but passing it that way requires the REF field to know it's a number.

    Will this do you?

    Thanks. I figured it out. {SEQ myList \s {REF someNumber}}. SEQ worked better since it gives a raw number, which I wanted. Listnum provides a format, which I did not want, and which I did not want to create a style in the template just to make it go back to a raw number.

    The problem was I was not "updating fields" before pressing Alt/F9.
