    Numerical Sequencing (MS Word 2003)

    HELP! I've been challenged to develop 3D Laser Scanning (high tech surveying) TARGETS for our field crew. The targets will be printed on Polyester and Vinyl Labels (2 per page/landscape) and must include a grid for the scanner to focus on and a target number. We want to be able to print series of targets numbered from 0001 to 9999. I've created a word file for the labels which includes the company logo and the necessary grid pattern. I can't seem to figure out how to make the labels automatically print out the series of numbers without typing each separate number onto each label. I know there must be a trick - do I merge with an excel file? If so how? Are there any other suggestions?? Thanks a big bunch!!!

    Welcome to Woody's Lounge!

    Entirely Word-based solutions can be found in the thread starting at <post#=382,593>post 382,593</post#>.

    It's also possible to use mail merge with an Excel workbook as data source. Create it as follows:
    Start a new workbook in Excel.
    Type a text (any text) in cell A1 (for example Number)
    Enter 1 in cell A2
    Select A2, then Edit | Fill | Series...
    Specify Columns, Step value 1 and Stop value 1000.
    Click OK.
    Save the workbook.
