Use the navigator on the right hand side and choose Edit All to make changes to all your tickets, such as changing the overall text style and size. Choose Edit One to make changes to individual tickets.

Scott, I was able to try this as I assumed that is what I needed to do. It does not work. First, the current macro for that button is a Save Record, Close Window operation. How could I keep this and also add Code? If I just add a new button to the form and under the On Click Event put the code you suggested, I get a compile error of “method or data member not found” and ” .txtPROJECT” is highlighted. The actual field is “PROJECT ID#” and it is a long integer number. Entry I have is: Private Sub Command88_Click()

Unlike identity columns values that are generated when rows are inserted, an application can obtain the next sequence number without inserting the row by calling the NEXT VALUE FOR function. Use sp_sequence_get_range to get multiple sequence numbers at once.

In this format, ident is replaced with a unique identifier for the sequence in question. Thus, you could have several sequences in a single document. For instance, one numbered sequence could use an identifier of MajorNum1, and another use an identifier of MajorNum2. The identifiers you use are entirely up to you.

Start adding some text. Date, time, place, event, etc. Be creative. You can place color boxes behind the text and play with the font sizes. I usually never use more the two fonts, and if I do, I’ll make sure that they are quite the opposite. Pick a font with a big family, meaning lots of weights. Helvetica, DIN or Univers are good choices.

Scott can I please get more detail on how to do what you are talking about in the scenario 3 you described above as this is exactly what I am basically trying to do. I would like to explain in more detail what I have accomplished so far and what I am trying to do.

But what is the ControlSource. Data controls have a Controlsource property. This property can be viewed in the Property dialog at the top of the Data tab. You need to set this to the Sequence field in your table.

My issue is trying to create small dot labels or equivalent to make up sequential alpha numeric labels to identify each individual item that I have in my shop, retrospectively. I have possibly 6-8thousand individual items that need coding for stock take purposes yet I can find no outlet that supply such thing. Do you have any suggestions. My line is antiques/collectables, predominantly china with items ranging in size from 2-3cm to 5/600cm. I would be most grateful for any solutions or suggestions. Best regards. Pete.

Just struggled through exactly the same issue. Copy the 1st page onto the second, right click on the each inserted number, and click update field, then select that page, copy and then paste for as many pages as you need. Select all these pages and hit F9, and as if by magic, all the number will fill in.

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).

The only thing I can think of is to revert the heading back to normal (Alt, H, E) and then reapply the style.  I have my Heading 1 mapped to Ctrl+Shift+1, Heading 2 and Heading 3 for same pattern.  I figure if I need to use Heading 4, I should rethink my document structure…

Tags for EPUB and HTML: Any list paragraph will be exported as list entry upon export as EPUB or HTML. Numbers become ol tags, bullets become ul tags. I would recommend to set up the export tagging as ”[Automatic]” and specify a CSS tag. Include it once in the CSS output.

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.

WordTemplatesBundle.com currently has 6 different templates available for free. Two of them are run-of-the-mill tickets that would be great for things like an office or classroom draw. The other four are the ones that are most helpful as they do automatic serial numbering.

Note: This method is for WordPerfect 10 and later; but for any version see the quick toggling method below, which you might find faster and easier to use. In any case, please read this section first since it presents some basic information.

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.

I’ve even tried adding the procedure to the OpenDate_AfterUpdate field instead of with the save record control, but I can’t seem to get it to work either. The only thing that shows up in the RecordNumber field is “13” unless I manually populate the Sequence field (which misses the whole point).

•  Step 2. With the Reference Tools dialog still open (you can drag it to relocate it on screen), select the first word or two of the text in step #3’s paragraph, then click inside the Select Target field. (The selected words should appear there. Alternatively, you can type a name into the field, if that works better for you.) Click the Mark Target button. A [Target] code is inserted in the document, in the outline’s paragraph just to the left of the word(s) you selected and marked.

As for that error, you need to find what line of code is generating it. If the error message has a Debug choice use it to see what line of code. If not, you need to step through the code to see where it errors out.

I set the field default value to “1” and I put in the code exactly as you gave it to me. Then I printed 3 copies to make a test. What was supposed to happen was that the first copy have a “1”, the second a “2”, the third a “3”. Instead all 3 copies had a “2”.

I am trying to use mailmerge to print tickets. I tried using a column of sequential numbers on a spreadsheet and inserting that as a field into the mailmerge, but oddly, it used number 8 eight times on the first page, number 16 eight times on the second page, etc. So, I tried using a sequencing field as you describe. It worked great for the first page (numbers 1-8) but when I completed the mailmerge, it repeated numbers 1-8 on each successive sheet. What do I have to do to make this work in a mailmerge?

You can delete this bullet style by editing your default template and deleting the style there (Format, Styles, , Options, Delete); however, it causes no harm to leave it in the styles list, and in any case you can still http://sl-inworld.com to insert the bullet.

To enter specific sequential number codes, such as purchase order numbers, you can use the ROW function together with the TEXT function. For example, to start a numbered list by using 000-001, you enter the formula =TEXT(ROW(A1),”000-000″) in the first cell of the range that you want to number, and then drag the fill handle to the end of the range.

As you can see, an idea of sequential numbering can be solved many different ways using different domains. This is typical in this field of work and precisely why it pays to not just consider how you can do it in one domain but also whether the domain is the right domain. We saw how we can easily leverage built-in features such as Transact-SQL’s ROW_NUMBER() or Access report’s Running Sum property. We also not only saw how we can craft our custom solutions in either VBA or SQL but we also see how we can use both together to create a solution that is better.

If you look back at the comments above, there’s a possible solution to your request in the June 24, 2011 question by Anthony (and my response) and the April 17, 2013 question by Nayana (and my response).

Note that we can consider multiple sequences at the same time by using different variables; e.g. ( b n ) n ∈ N {\displaystyle (b_{n})_{n\in \mathbb {N} }} could be a different sequence than ( a n ) n ∈ N {\displaystyle (a_{n})_{n\in \mathbb {N} }} . We can even consider a sequence of sequences: ( ( a m , n ) n ∈ N ) m ∈ N {\displaystyle ((a_{m,n})_{n\in \mathbb {N} })_{m\in \mathbb {N} }} denotes a sequence whose mth term is the sequence ( a m , n ) n ∈ N {\displaystyle (a_{m,n})_{n\in \mathbb {N} }} .

Hi – are you creating your own tickets using the instructions on this page? If so, you can of course change the font and everything else in your Word document. If you are using the Raffle Ticket Creator app (app.raffleticketcreator.com) then you can’t change the font size … you’ll just need to tinker with the exact words that you are including in order to get them to fit on the page. Hope that helps!

When you insert (or paste) text that contains [Outline][Para Style] codes into the current outline, those codes probably will conflict with the existing outline’s codes (located farther “upstream” from the current paste location).

  1. 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
    Type “seq ” followed by the name of the element. This name is up to you, but should be the same for each item in this sequence. For instance, you could type “seq figures” or “seq tables” (without the quote marks).
    Start adding some text. Date, time, place, event, etc. Be creative. You can place color boxes behind the text and play with the font sizes. I usually never use more the two fonts, and if I do, I’ll make sure that they are quite the opposite. Pick a font with a big family, meaning lots of weights. Helvetica, DIN or Univers are good choices.
