    making numeric labels (2000)

    Is there an easy way to make iterative numeric labels in Word? I need to make stick on labels -- say they start at 1 and the next one is 2, 3, 4....up to about 150. So they would have to put a different number on each lable and extend across columns and rows and pages.

    If so, is it easy to change that so it starts at a different number? Say 88, 89... 190 or something like that?

    You can very easily make an Excel spreadsheet with a column of consecutive numbers, say 1 to 1000, then use the mail merge feature in Word to create labels with the spreadsheet as data source. You can specify a range of records (=numbers) to be merged in the third step of the Mail Merge Helper.

    As an alternative to Hans suggestion, you could:
    1. create a table in Word
    2. create a SEQ field {SEQ A}
    3. copy it to the clipboard
    4. select table
    5. paste the SEQ field (it will paste into all selected cells); you could also format them as centered if you wanted.
    6. update the fields

    To change the starting number to say, 88, modify the first SEQ field to read {SEQ A r 88} & update all the fields.
    Cheers,
