Everytime the part number generator rule is triggered, it would create a new part number on the next blank row, copy this part number to the Part Number iProperty and assign the file in which the iLogic rule was executed to column B in the xls, save and close.
Does anyone know whether its possible to make Coreldraw (11) number objects within a file with consecutive numbers. It gets a bit tedious placing text and renumbering it incrementally manually when you’ve got 500 items to label!! I was looking for a shortcut, or perhaps a macro which can take the boredom out of the process. Any ideas?
Notice there are no items numbered with a single, whole number (1,2,3) in the above list — as would be the case when using the standard Legal outline — because those would be first-level items. The list above is made up of second-level (Legal-style) outline items. (Third- and subsequent-level items are still available by demoting an item with the key or with the Demote button on the Outline property bar.)
Scott, I had posted on Microsoft and you sent me to your blog to have the numbering system (similar to APEX example) explained. I am not a programmer and I don’t understand where these codes and expressions are even suppose to go in access. When I do try to implement the little I do know I continue to get errors. I am not sure if I am putting the information in the wrong place or if I am way off. Do you know of any youtube videos that could walk me through it step by step? Or if you have the time could you help walk me through the steps.
Modern VINs are based on two related standards, originally issued by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) in 1979 and 1980: ISO 3779 and ISO 3780, respectively. Compatible but different implementations of these ISO standards have been adopted by the European Union and the United States, respectively.
In 1981, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration of the United States standardized the format. It required all on-road vehicles sold to contain a 17-character VIN, which does not include the letters I (i), O (o), and Q (q) (to avoid confusion with numerals 1 and 0).
A defined list can be interrupted by other paragraphs and lists, and can span different stories and different documents in a book. For example, use defined lists to create a multi-level outline, or to create a running list of numbered table names throughout your document. You can also define lists for separately numbered or bulleted items that are mixed together. For example, in a list of questions and answers, define one list for numbering the questions and another for numbering the answers.
You won’t use any of the standard List Number styles for SEQ field numbering. You need to create your own style sequential numbering in indesign you want correct indentation and alignment with the tab position of the first word after the number. In this example, I’ll create a new style called Step Number, but you can call it whatever you want. In this example, I’ve also used the default settings for tab and hanging indent positions — you can change these later if you want.
For the calendar job, I’ve used two master layers and four local layers. To create a master layer, click the New Master Layer (all pages) button at the bottom of the Object Manager docker. Objects placed on this master layer will appear on all pages of your design. Then, create the required number of regular or local layers (in this case, four) by clicking the New Layer button. You now have one page ready.
To create a running list—a list that is interrupted by other paragraphs or that spans multiple stories or documents—create a paragraph style and apply the style to paragraphs that you want to be part of the list. For example, to create a running list of the tables in your document, create a paragraph style called Tables, make a defined list part of the style, and then apply the Tables paragraph style to all paragraphs you want in your Table list.
I had the same issue on how to use a sequence of numbers for any kind of usage and ginally today I found the solution. I will demonstrate my steps because it was more complicated (you can see the attachement). So, I had to create a solo page for printing in a plotter that should contain 4000 different QRcodes (1000X4) with their number underneath. In my project I use 20 qrcodes in one line to fit about 1m of plotter sticker paper vinyl.
Please Note: This article is written for users of the following Microsoft Word versions: 97, 2000, 2002, and 2003. If you are using a later version (Word 2007 or later), this tip may not work for you. For a version of this tip written specifically for later versions of Word, click here: Sequentially Numbered Labels.
Running captions number figures, tables, and other items consecutively in a document. For example, the first figure caption starts with the words “Figure 1,” the second with “Figure 2,” and so on. To make sure that figures, tables, or similar items are numbered consecutively, define a list for the item, and then create a paragraph style that includes the list definition. You can also add descriptive words such as “Figure” or “Table” to the numbering scheme of the paragraph style.
If you will be sending it to a print shop, go ahead and give them a call, they may have a numbering machine and for a small fee be able to alleviate that concern. If a five minute call can save the hassle of all those work arounds it seems to me it would be quicker.
If you are still reading this then perhaps you are looking for a simple and reliable way to number a couple of lists in a Word document. If you read John’s article then you have already been informed that field numbering is simple and robust. If you are like 9 out of 10 Word users in my office then anything more than 1. space space Blah, blah “enter” 2. space space Blah, blah … defies simple! If that applies to you, then the “SeqField Numbering” Add-In presented later in this page is for you.
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.
A binary sequence is a sequence whose terms have one of two discrete values, e.g. base 2 values (0,1,1,0, …) , a series of coin tosses (Heads/Tails) H,T,H,H,T, …, the answers to a set of True or False questions (T, F, T, T, …), and so on.
On the master background layer, you will place all objects that are part of the background, which is common to all pages. In the sequence of layers, the background layer is the first from the bottom. All other layers are stacked above it (Figure 4).
i’ve had to do tons of this lately and found that for the amounts of tickets being done (e.g. 7000 x 10 tickets + cover & mailer) that chuckT’s solution almost 2 years ago is similar to what i use. would be interested to know if others doing similar VDP are using a wholly indesign/excel solution, or if specific VDP software such as XMPie are being used.
The Current Page Number is a special character inserted in a text frame on a page or master page (recommended) where the page number will appear, by selecting Type>Insert Special Character>Markers>Current Page Number. You can put as many of these special characters on a page as you’d like and they will all pick up the current page number.
My page numbers all appear onscreen in my document where they should be, but they do not appear when I print the pages. Am using the same template as I did with a document I prepared a couple of months ago and did not have this problem when I printed all the pages in that document. The master page thing is already a done deal.
indicating the tenth inquiry of 2009. You can use that as the Controlsource of a control on a form or report. In a query you would preface with an Alias rather than the equals sign (i.e.; Inquiry Code:).
• Step 2. Click the Options button, and click on Copy to make a copy of this outline that you can edit to make a brand-new outline. The Outline Definition Copy dialog opens. If you want to copy the new outline style to the default template, click on the radio button “Default template”; otherwise, click OK. The Outline Definition Duplicate dialog opens; give the style a name such as “Roman 2” then press OK. The new style will be added to the bottom of the icons. (It should already be selected; if not, select it.)
If you start to type in what appears to be a numbered list, Word formats your manually typed “numbers” to an automatic numbered list. The main benefit of this option is that you do not need to click any button to start numbering and you can choose your numbering style as well. For example, if you type “(a) some text” and press Enter, it starts numbering using the “(a)” format.
“But what if I already have a long list of items that I want numbered.” OK, thanks to the power of Word macros, Word MVP Graham Mayor and I have put together a Word add-in that makes SEQ field list numbering as simple as ABC.
Other examples of sequences include ones made up of rational numbers, real numbers, and complex numbers. The sequence (.9, .99, .999, .9999, …) approaches the number 1. In fact, every real number can be written as the limit of a sequence of rational numbers, e.g. via its decimal expansion. For instance, π is the limit of the sequence (3, 3.1, 3.14, 3.141, 3.1415, …). A related sequence is the sequence of decimal digits of π, i.e. (3, 1, 4, 1, 5, 9, …). This sequence does not have any pattern that is easily discernible by eye, unlike the preceding sequence, which is increasing.
Hello Nikoforos, welcome to GS.DE and thanks for your answer. Although your answer is very creative, and a good workaround for people who need sequential numbers inside an AI file, it doesn’t really answer the question. The OP is asking for a technique to add a number to a static document at the time of printing. – PieBie Mar 4 ’16 at 8:42
The third step is to duplicate the page until you have 12 pages. Right-click the Page 1 tab at the bottom of the application window, and choose Duplicate Page from the drop-menu. Since you haven’t added objects to the page yet, you can choose the default options in the Duplicate Page dialog box, and click OK.
Ordinarily I don’t like using the Variant type because it’s wasteful of memory and encourages sloppy programming. But the way this macro uses it — as a string when dealing with the PrivateProfileString, and as an integer when doing arithmetic — makes it necessary.
Now, what’s the deal with the UniqueKeyVariant parameter for the RowNumber() function? We are not even using it all! True, but if we didn’t, Access will call RowNumber() only once for an entire query and thus we get “1” for the entire dataset. That is a good way to save on CPU processing – why call Now() for each row? In this case, we want to go against this CPU-saving measure and ensure that the RowNumber() is in fact called once per row to generate a new number for that row. Thus, we pass in a parameter — a primary key of a table is a good choice for this purpose. So we get a nice sequential number generated all in the query with VBA function.
BTW keep in mind that you can insert custom info into a PDF document in several ways making them visible or hidden and to this purpose metadata are often used; anyway, I am going to focus on a header applied to page 1 of each PDF.
