    Restart numbering problem (2000/SR1)

    Hi,

    Sometimes my restart numbering feature doesn't work. When I click Format > Bullets and Numbering... > Restart numbering, the RN option is grayed out (so is the "Continue previous list" option, for what that's worth). I try re-applying the List Number style from our template, but that doesn't make a difference.

    This has happened before, and usually I can "fake it" by grabbing a "1." item from elsewhere, pasting it in, and juggling the text. But even that doesn't always work.

    Thanks,
    Bob

    I'm not sure if this would solve your problem, but it's something to check.
    Go into Format>Style... and highlight the numbering style you use. Click the Modify button then from the Format drop-down button, choose Numbering. Take note of the tab and the position of what numbering list the style uses. Cancel out of the dialog boxes without changing anything. Then go to the text where the style in question has been applied... right click and choose Bullets and Numbering. If the style is applied correctly, it should show the same tab and same position that the style uses... if not... there's a problem with the applying the style and post back... if it is the same... <img src=/S/shrug.gif border=0 alt=shrug width=39 height=15> maybe someone else could be of further assistance.
    hope that helps
    have fun

    I tried your suggestion, and it showed the same Bullet/Number spec for the style and the problem text. I've tried running different macro code on it, and that hasn't helped either.

    Thanks anyway,
    Bob

    Bob,

    Here's some code I cribbed from somewhere (perhaps Andrew Lockton?) - does this work?:

    Sub ListRestart()
    ' Resets numbering of current list to restart numbering
    Dim aList As Variant
    Set aList = Selection.Range.ListFormat
    aList.ApplyListTemplate ListTemplate:=aList.ListTemplate, _
    ContinuePreviousList:=False
    End Sub

    Re: Restart numbering problem (2000/SR1)

    I found this code while searching the list, and it didn't help. Word seems to think the list has no numbering, so it blanks out the restart numbering and continue list options.

    However--good news--I changed the template of the doc from the custom template to Normal.dot, and I was able to restart numbering. I then changed back to the custom template and continued work. Not the best fix, but it's something.

    Thanks for your suggestion,
    Bob
