    AutoNumber Interrogatories (Office Pro 2003)

    I know how to create this so that it will autonumber but my question is the limit of characters I can use. This is how I want Heading 1 to read:

    SPECIAL INTERROGATORY NO. 1:

    It should be at the left margin. When I go into Outline Number and select the first level and try to type in this whole phrase, I can't. Does anyone know what the limit of characters is and why?

    Actually I've never used Autonumbering for this but Seq fields instead. I think if you do it that way, you won't run into the snag that you have.

    Try this:
    1. Type SPECIAL INTERROGATORY NO. followed by a space
    2. Press CTRL + F9 to insert field characters
    3. Type SEQ Rog within the field characters
    4. Press F9 to update the field and a number1 should appear.
    5. Select SPECIAL INTERROGATORY NO. 1 and press ALT + F3 to create an Autotext entry. Name it something like rog.
    6. When you want to use them, type rog and press F3.

    Note: you can set up your answers to your interrogatories the same way, you would just replace Seq Rog with Seq Ans (step 3) and name your Autotext something like ans (step 5)

    Hi there, Jan! The limit is 22 characters. Why? Only MS knows for sure. The suggestion for creating an AutoText entry is likely your best solution.
