    Number Styles In Tables (2000)

    I know there is an easy answer for this, it's just that I can't find it anywhere. How do I change a number style (say from having no commas to having commas, etc.) in a table?
    Thanks,
    Jeff

    The easy answer is 'Use Excel' but I guess you don't want to hear that.

    Was your question talking about numbers in form fields, automatic list numbering or just plain old typed characters sitting around?

    Form Fields-I am trying to insert formulas, and then format the resulting numbers. Also, am I forced to type in the comma an/or decimal/dollar sign when entering the data for the first time into a table?
    Thanks,
    Jeff

    Hi Jeff:

    You can format the form field by going to properties & choosing a number format under options. Tick the box that says "Calculate on exit". Then you can use a {REF} field in your table that will pick up the formatting.

    However, you can't format table cells in Word, like you can in Excel.

    Hope this helps.
