    Quick Removal OF Manual Paragraph Numbering (Word 2k)

    Hi folks
    Any bright ideas or pointers to a utility that will enable me to quickly remove manually typed paragraph numbers ...
    There are +300 pages, with mixture of manual and automatic numbering and probably a host of manually restarted numbering <img src=/S/hairout.gif border=0 alt=hairout width=31 height=23>
    Cheers

    DocXStyles by Microsystems. They have a full-featured trial version available here. It integrates with most third-party numbering suites, or with Word's native Heading style numbering. I highly recommend this tool -- what used to take me hours of clean-up to accomplish can now be done (without exaggeration) in a matter of minutes.

    I use this macro to do the job on selected paragraphs (Ctrl-A for all 300 pages at once)
    <pre>Sub NumberingDeleteHardcoded()
    'Only acts on selected paragraphs
    Dim iResp As Integer
    iResp = MsgBox("This macro will remove all hardcoded paragraph numbers " _
    & vbCr & "from the SELECTED paragraphs. Click OK to continue.", _
    vbOKCancel, "Delete Hard Numbers")
    If iResp = vbOK Then
    WordBasic.ToolsBulletsNumbers Replace:=0, Type:=1, Remove:=1
    End If
    End Sub</pre>
