“how to get sequence numbers in word microsoft word page numbers not sequential”

We created a spreadsheet with numbers running in one column in 4-out number groups: 1, 251, 501, 751, etc. and use the multiple records set-up. Our recent challenge was to take that spread sheet and do the 4-out number groupings in threes for reverse collate 3-part NCR on a copier. Takes a bit of time to set up but worth it in the long run.

With this expression we check only for records that are in the same year as the Inquiry date to increment the sequence. Again, the NZ function will automatically restart the sequence with each year. Cleary, though, we cannot generate this number until the InquiryDate has been entered. Is this value is a user entry, then you may want to check that it’s filled in before generating the number. Something like:

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.

You’re here because you are trying to do something good for someone in need. The world could use a few more people like you. Yet fund raising, even on a small scale, still takes a lot of work. If you’ve decided a raffle is the way to go, we’re here to help.

First, you can’t use an Autonumber as part of your identifier as it can’t be reset for each year. So you have to follow the instructions in my blog article to create a sequential number. The article describes exactly how you can do what you want. If you follow the article closely, you should be able to do what you need.

Create an Excel worksheet that has as many numbers in it as you need. For instance, if you need 175 labels, you would place a title in cell A1 (such as “Number”) and the 175 numbers you need in cells A2 through A176. Make sure you save the workbook.

For an example, a new sequence is created with a starting value of 1 and a cache size of 15. When the first value is needed, values 1 through 15 are made available from memory. The last cached value (15) is written to the system tables on the disk. When all 15 numbers are used, the next request (for number 16) will cause the cache to be allocated again. The new last cached value (30) will be written to the system tables.

Whether you’re prepping for a concert, a school play, a sports event or another show, tickets help you control the crowd and keep track of an audience. Instead of buying generic tear-off tickets from a store, design custom tickets in Microsoft Publisher, the Microsoft Office suite’s desktop-publishing layout and design program. With a couple of quick clicks, you’ll have a way to create tickets in a specific order, which may be “just the ticket” for your event.

Thanks for the post – it got my headings working nicely…..yesterday. Today I’ve reopened the word file and the “numbered” part of the level 2 headings are all overlaid with a black box….which I can’t remove. Unfortunately I can’t attach a picture or a copy of the file. This black box obscures only the numbered part of only the level 2 heading – level 1 and 3 look fine. Any ideas?

Numbering and Section options are available in the Pages Panel menu. These options allow you to define what page starts a section and how it should be numbered. A Current Page Number marker must be set on pages in order to use this feature. 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 could copy the inline-numbered paragraph, update all the values, and the codes would evaluate based on the preceding paragraph. In other words, the new paragraph’s first field code would update to 8, the second to 9, and so on. But you can reset a code and thereby subsequent codes using a special switch as follows:

What I have is a document that prints business cards on business card sheets so to speak. So the page has 2 columns and 5 rows, so 10 business cards. I am using it to print coupons and would like to add a coupon code to each card. I want it to say start at 1000 and count up.

Warning  Some people like to use BACKSPACE to remove numbering. This method does remove the number but leaves the cursor indented to whichever level you happened to be in, http://sl-inworld.com in Outline Numbered paragraphs. The two methods mentioned above will remove the number and restore your cursor to the left margin.

•  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 “Checklist” then press OK. The new style will be added to the bottom of the icons. (It should already be selected; if not, select it.)

One of the easiest ways to begin applying numbers is by starting to type a numbered list. Word recognizes that you are creating a list and responds accordingly by converting text that you type into numbered items. The number scheme, delimiter characters that mark the beginning or end of a unit of data and formatting are all based on what you have typed.

I am trying to create Raffle Style tickets using Avery 16154 ticket stock.  I am working in Adobe InDesign CC.  Can someone tell me how to create sequentially numbered tickets in Adobe InDesign CC (I have found it for other versions which don’t work in CC). I need a ticket number on the “stub” and the same matching number on the tear off portion.  They are 10 tickets to an 8.5 X 11 page.

In areas that use the metric system, distance-based numbers are by kilometer rather than mile. A few highways, such as Delaware Route 1 and Interstate 19, have been renumbered from miles to kilometers, even in areas that typically use miles.

There is a way to fill a column with sequential numbers in MS Excel, but there is no similar way available for MS-Word tables. So, I lazily began to enter serial numbers one by one manually but then I thought there must be a way to do this tiny task in a more efficient manner.

Thanks everyone for your time and comments. What I was hoping to avoid was having to render out every ticket inDesign before printing. Seems like that is unavoidable. I’ll try the way you folks have suggested, thanks again.

  1. 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.
    If you don’t want to use one of the existing bullet characters, you can add other bullet characters to the Bullet Character grid. A bullet character that is available in one font may not be available in another font. You can choose whether the font is remembered with any bullet character you add.
