Even though it looks like I clicked on the numbering button at the top, I did not. I applied the list number style. That style has different indents and a different font. Those are the settings in the List Number Style.

Sequence fields are the first method that Word developed for automatic numbering and, in the words of John McGhie, the most robust. They are virtually unbreakable. Here is a link to the Microsoft Office reference page for them in Word 2010. As far as I know, the syntax and the switches have remained unchanged since before Windows.
If you tell the printer to print X copies, then it handles the printing, outside of Acrobat. The only way to modify a value on the PDF is to control the printing yourself. A script would do this easily from a Folder level script, Command Script, or the Console am trying to do something similar, but more difficult. I need to print a 4 page PDF, it has a number field with a 3 digit number in the corner of the first page. I need the number to increase every time it prints, however, I print many copies at once, sometimes 50 to 100. Is there a way to set it to print that many copies and increase that number after each copy? Ive been trying to figure this out for about a year now, if anyone could help, please let me know.
A Sequence field tracks differently numbered lists within a document. Combining Sequence fields and AutoText entries give you a fast and easy way to insert Interrogatories, Requests for Production, and Requests for Admission.
Ah, that’s the con – this works beautifully when you are in fact exporting data but when you are viewing the query’s output in a datasheet or a form, as you scroll around, Access will be re-evaluating the rows, including a call to the RowNumber(). But when it repeatedly calls RowNumber(), of course it keeps incrementing blindly, without any regards to whether a number was already generated for that row.

If there are multiple instances of the NEXT VALUE FOR function specifying the same sequence generator within a single Transact-SQL statement, all those instances return the same value for a given row processed by that Transact-SQL statement. This behavior is consistent with the ANSI standard.
We use the auto page numbering trick here, the trick is to do it as spreads. You just make your pages the same size as the ticket with crops and bleeds. Then set up the shell on the master page and place your auto page number where you want your numbers. Each pages is the next number. You can also have two sets of numbers for perforated ticket. You then can use the page start options to add to the numbers and keep the same number of total numbers. For example you would do a new page start after number 99. 0001 to 0099 so it doesn’t add two “0’s” to the front of 100 and you get 00100 when you want 0100. Works great for small quantities, we have done up to 1000+ tickets and once you do it once or twice it is a snap to set up. To avoid having to do 1000 pages just send the tickets in groups. Usually between 25 to 100 at a time works good depending on artwork file size. Just save each time before sending to printer and name the file with what the tickets are. Like “MyTickets-0001-0100.Indd”. Makes it easier to go back if you have a problem. You can even do two rolls of tickets if your using 12 x 18 sheets by flipping the sheet and doing one row along the top and one along the bottom on reverse side. That is if your ticket is single Sided. Two sided tickets are a bit trickier. 🙂
Tutorial for creating sequential numbers on Avery Labels with Microsoft Word 2007 and Microsoft Excel 2007. This may work with other versions, such as Word 2010, Word 2013 and Word 2016, and Excel 2010, Excel 2013 and Excel 2016.
If you need to apply numbering within a paragraph rather than to the entire paragraph, you use Word’s ListNum feature. Using the ListNum feature will allow you to take advantage of the numbering system you’re currently using in your document (it will use the one you implemented most recently if you’re not currently using a numbering system). The ListNum Field is available in Word 97 and later and interacts with multi-level list numbering (which should be linked to styles as set forth here). Here is a brief explanation of differences between the ListNum field and the Seq field.
As you’ve seen, the identifier is built using other data besides the sequence number. Since this other data is a part of the record, you don’t want to store this identifier since that means storing the same data twice. That’s why we use an expression to display the identifier rather than store it.
The Insert Sequence Number utility makes it easy to insert unique sequence numbers into contiguous cells and non-contiguous ranges in Excel. What’s more, you can continue inserting the sequence numbers next time in different worksheets and workbooks.
– So when I create the button, I do not want it to be the save button, I want it to be a separate button in the form that populates/generates the number into the PONum field. Is that what your current example does?
Notice here that we need to surround CaseNumber with Single quotes since it’s a Text datatype. As in the other scenarios, The NZ function automatically restarts the sequence when a new CaseNumber is used. In this scenario we would want to check whether the CaseNumber has been entered before generating the sequence.

These numbers are updated when you sort them with your data. The sequence may be interrupted if you add, move, or delete rows. You can manually update the numbering by selecting two numbers that are in the right sequence, and then dragging the fill handle to the end of the numbered range.
This could be done with a macro, but the code would need to be tailored to put the numbers where you need them. Can you attach a document to a post with some representative data (delete anything sensitive)? You do this via the paperclip symbol on the ‘Go Advanced’ tab.

I would add some code to test if the “defaultValue” is empty and then add the serial number and if it is not empty then do not update the number. Your source document will have to be saved with the “defaultValue” of the field cleared.
Understanding outline numbering and how outline numbering interacts with styles is crucial to your success in using Word with legal documents. Basic outline numbering can be handled much the same way as bullets and numbering. Seven default outline numbered lists come with Word. Three of the lists format the paragraphs with outline numbers. These lists are in the top row of the dialog box. The remaining four format the paragraphs with outline numbers and apply heading styles to the paragraphs and can be found in the bottom row.
No price — just Extract the .VLX files from the .ZIP files attached to Post 3, into whatever support file location you use for things like this, and use APPLOAD to load them. [I haven’t tried them, so I’m not sure whether the file names are also the command names you would then use.]
The Number Press Number Assistant is what makes numbering with Number Press so easy. Other numbering programs require you to think hard about what you want, do math, and waste time with trial and error — but not Number Press!

“I access the Number-Pro membership area any time I need a data file to number my projects. My last project I had to print fifteen thousand raffle tickets that needed to be numbered. I don’t know how I would have done it without Number-Pro”
Thanks very much for your prompt reply, which reassured me that I was on the right path. From having read various Help topics, I suspected that I’d have to use an Excel data source for the numbers. Fortunately, my knowledge of Excel was good enough to know about the drag and drop facility to create automatic sequential numbering, so the data source creation was easy. In the end, it was the mail merge (no surprises?) which proved a tad tricky, but I got there in the end. I’ve used MM many times and quite happily in Word documents, but for Publisher label format, it was of course a bit different. The important bit that I had to discover for myself was the significance of, after getting to the Print stage, going into Print options, to Publication & Paper Settings, and selecting Multiple Pages per Sheet (& in my case, also “Single-sided” cos my default of duplex printing had come up). But TA-DA! All is fine now. Thanks very much again.
Let me show you what I’m talking about. It’s going to make your life so much easier if you ever run into this situation. So I have a variety of text strings on my screen. That’s very hard to say. I’m going to go over to my Express Tools, and I’m going to select Auto Number, and that executes the TCount command — great command, fabulous command. I’m going to go ahead and select these text strings over here. You’ll notice I picked them in a specific order. That’s the order it’s going to increment them as well. So that’s kind of important.
An application requires multiple numbers to be assigned at the same time. For example, an application needs to reserve five sequential numbers. Requesting identity values could result in gaps in the series if other processes were simultaneously issued numbers. Calling sp_sequence_get_range can retrieve several numbers in the sequence at once.
