GREAT tip with lots of uses! Thank you. This will save me hours of work on some tickets I’m designing. However, I also need to set up table tents that have numbers on them. They’re 2-up, and are folded, so each number needs to appear twice on the same page. In short, I want a page with 1/1 and 2/2, and I’m getting 1/2 and 3/4. Am I missing an obvious fix? Thank you.
Tip Using the same logic for removing underlining from a number, you can make the paragraph number bold without having the text of the paragraph formatted as bold. In the Customize window of the Bullets and Numbering dialog box, choose the applicable level and click Font. Select Bold, and click OK twice.
Re-Imagine your software business! The light version of popular Terrasoft CRM released specially for Software Publishers. Customer database application that lets you build your software brand by providing the best sales and support experience.
Instead of a merge, use a page of labels with six SEQ fields set for different sequences and with an interval of 6. The first page would be your initial set of fields with numbering 1, 35, 69, 103, 137, and 171.
The ObjectID or Auto Incrementing field approach give the most user friendly Ticket Number, but the necessity to be connected and the fact that it is completely managed by the database rule this option out in some scenarios.
Numbering raffle tickets can be a rough project to tackle without the right tools. Luckily you can number raffle tickets or any other document or form with a desktop publishing software program you may already own like Microsoft Word, Publisher, Adobe Indesign or CorelDraw or any desktop publishing software that has a mail merge function. Then all that is needed is a program that can create the mail merge file you need to number your tickets like starting number, ending number, prefix and so on. And for that program we suggest Number-Pro.
I am a little confused by your finale note paragraph. In my original try, the field in the form, I had used design wizard so it already had the field PONum on it, is this something I am supposed to change?
Publisher doesn’t allow for automated sequencing, with the exception of the numbers that come on the tickets in the template. Each ticket must be hand-typed unless you choose to follow the template sequencing.
Now you’re done. Click OK and you should see the number appear in the text frame. To make more numbers, just duplicate this frame. Every time you make a new frame, InDesign increments the number automatically. Note that in the following image, the frames are not threaded together:
The first argument function_num can be any number from 1 to 11 (includes hidden values) or 101-111 hidden values) that specifies what function to use in calculating subtotal to the range specified (i.e. ref1 as the second argument).
Tip: If your data source contains records that share the same information, and there are ten or fewer unique values in the column, you can filter by specific information. For example, if there are multiple records that list Australia as the country/region, you can filter on Australia.
There’s an old Steve Martin joke about how to make a million dollars which starts, “First, get a million dollars…” That’s the key to this trick, too: First, get a bunch of numbers. Here’s a file with 1,197 numbers in it. Now import or paste those numbers into a thread so that the numbers appear in the right place. If you need two matching numbers, just import it twice.
Note: These numbers are not automatically updated when you add, move, or remove rows. You can manually update the sequential numbering by selecting two numbers that are in the right sequence, and then dragging the fill handle to the end of the numbered range.
The brackets around the tablename may be confusing Access. If you review the blog you will see I never use brackets for the table name. Other things to check. Is the Sequence control bound to the Sequence field in EvidenceDetail? Is MatterCode a text datatype?
The major benefit of doing this is that if after numbering one of the document is misplaced, then cashier will come to know about it immediately as sequence will break. Let’s say HG – 8888 is not in the stack. Now, as cashier knows that after C – 0003 there must be C – 0004 before C – 0005, he immediately found that one document is missing.
To use mail merge to create a batch of gift certificates or coupons with tracking numbers, you need to set up a data source that contains a column listing the tracking numbers. If you plan to add only the tracking numbers to your publications, create a data source for the tracking numbers. If you also plan to use mail merge to insert additional information into your publications, such as customer names or addresses, you can add the column of tracking numbers to a data source that also lists the name and address data that you want to use.
Similarly, you will want to decide if you want to make the Ticket Number be a read-only field or not. If users are given the ability to override a Ticket Number manually, you can no longer guarantee uniqueness. You can easily flag the readonly XLSForm column of your question to ‘yes’ if you want to make your Ticket Number question read-only.
For example, you would like to have your first level of numbering to be Bold and Centered. In the previous section, you experienced that when you used Outline Numbering alone, you had to format each paragraph individually to be centered. When you use styles, the centering takes place automatically once you’ve defined the style to be centered.
I would like to print 500 copies of one word document and I need to have 1-500 on the top of the page. I know how to get the page number on but how do I get it to print the page number if there is only one doc.
An awesome new feature to has been introduced to Microsoft Publisher 2010 is the ability to use Data Sources to create “Catalogue Pages”. This is like a Mail Merge for design documents. Now, I would have to agree that Publisher isn’t the best graphic design program in the market. But it’s certainly adequate for simple ticket designs — for example, for a school social. Let’s say we want each ticket to have a unique number and an inspiration quote. This is all possible through Publisher and a data source, e.g. an Excel Spreadsheet.
FONT TIP: Do not use any fonts that start with a period. For example, instead of using ”.Helvetica” use ”Helvetica” instead. Fonts that start with a period in the font menu are not compatible with Number Press.
Neighborhood businesses: The shops and stores in your own community are great places to start selling your raffle tickets. These are locales you frequent, where you know the owners and are able talk to them while you’re there. The more familiar you are to them, the more likely they’ll support your fundraising efforts and will be willing provide a selling spot for you.
If the second number on your raffle ticket is one higher than the first number, you must have accidentally put the <> tag after the first number (causing the next number, on the same ticket, to increase by one). You only need the <> after the second number on each ticket, so the next ticket gets a new number. (But you don’t need it on the final ticket on the **page**, because the next **page** automatically gets a new number)
Do you know of any other good raffle ticket templates for Word? Got some tips on making great tickets? How about things you’ve done to boost ticket sales? We’d love to hear about them. Helping people make use of technology to help others is a worthy goal.
But would like a Numbering Program which will work with a PC using PDF converted layouts. I presume the PDF file formatting is better than converting the base layout to be numbered to TIFF of Jpeg? Is this a proper assumption?
