17. On the Print Preview screen, click the Imposition Layout tool, and type values for the number of rows and columns on the property bar, depending on how many images horizontally and vertically you want to have on the page. In this example, there are two columns and three rows.
Hi Scott, I had a question regarding the sequential numbering Apex example…I am looking to automatically restart the sequence every month, which is not a problem using your example (i.e. changing the year to month in the expression). However, I would also like to add in a condition for year, so that the sequence restarts for each month of each year (i.e. my problem is for example that Feb 2011 last sequence number is 5, and then in Feb 2012 this becomes 6, where I would like it to be 1). I am wondering what the syntax would be. Thanks in advance, Lawn.
That would work for a few, but what if you have 20 or 30 or even 100? The imposition tool works great for just about any quantity. You don’t have to import from a csv file, you can enter the data within the imposition tool and even save it for later use.
Sequential numbering is used on many types of forms and printed material. This numbering process can be used on carbonless forms (No Carbon Required), note pads, work orders, invoices, promotional pieces such as door hangars and more.
By default, the Running Header variables insert the first occurrence (on the page) of the text to which the specified style is applied. Running Header variables are especially useful for displaying the current heading or title in the header or footer.
I have the page numbering macro. It works on new files; however, it doesn’t work on specific saved files. What could be wrong with those files? Is there any way to enable the page numbering macro in those files?
Thanks for watching! We hope you found this tutorial helpful and we would love to hear your feedback in the Comments section below. And don’t forget to visit our social media pages and show us what you’ve learned by sharing your photos, videos and creative projects with us.
See attached. I’ve replaced your manual numbering with Word’s Heading Styles using multi-level list numbering. Adding a new row to the table will result in that row’s numbering incrementing. Changing the heading level will re-set the numbering accordingly.
Normally it is easy to insert sequence numbers in contiguous cells of Excel by dragging mouse, after you enter two numbers, such as 1 and 2. However, if you want to insert customized sequential numbers in Excel, such as 000 – 001, 000 – 002, … 000 -020, it is quite hard because you cannot add 0 at beginning of cells unless you convert numbers to text. Now, with the Insert Sequence Number utility of Kutools for Excel, you can create any customizing sequence numbers and insert them quickly. With this handy utility, you can:
Occasionally we come across project requirements that include the ability to do sequential numbering in Access on a set of data. We cannot just use the auto-number data type because there is no promise of sequentiality but only uniqueness. In other words, if someone creates a record then later deletes it, there will be a gap in the sequence. So, what are our options? There are actually several ways, each with its pros and cons.
As I indicated, because you want to only generate this number just before saving, I would put this code behind a Save button or another event that runs just before you save the record. So if you want to prevent duplications, you don’t use sequential numbering expression as a control source, but put the code behind a button or event. Since you have a Save button, put it there.
For example, to create a “Figure A” effect, enter the word “Figure” and a space before the numbering metacharacters (such as Figure ^#.^t). This adds the word “Figure” followed by a sequential number (^#), a period, and a tab (^t).
I didn’t answer Lorraine’s query as I’ve never tried to do this sort of thing in a text box. I suspect it may not work — many other things don’t work in text boxes, such as spell check. Is it possible for you to put this number into a (borderless) table cell? The SEQ field should work then.
If you’re a self-taught InDesign user, you may not have been introduced to automatic page numbering, one of the biggest time-saving features in the program. InDesign allows you to set up the page numbering feature in your Master Pages. Then, as you add or shuffle pages, InDesign updates individual page numbers accordingly. You can style the page number any way you like.
– For instance, let’s assume that one of the cells in the table has a content description (It’s really an issue, described elaborately in at least a long sentence). The issues are different, across rows and tables and so this content changes across tables.
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.
In order to insert the data field, select the little arrowed cursor from the Print Merge Flyout menu, and click on Cir 1, then insert that in your first circle. With the regular pointer tool, select the text that says
Sequential numbers can be printed almost anywhere on a sheet or form and can be positioned horizontally or vertically. Numbers can also be repeated in another position on the form. When developing your artwork, consider putting a box for numbering, making it easier for your customers or employees to find and reference a specific job or transaction. You may also differentiate your number by color. Most printers allow a choice of colors, typically black or red, to make your number stand out. Start your sequencing at any point you like, to pick up where you left off on your last print order.
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.
Step 5: Then click Add button to add your created sequence into above list box, and select the item that you are created, then click Fill Range button to insert the sequence numbers into the selected range. See screenshots:
In the Mail Merge task pane, in the list under Prepare your publication, locate the field name that corresponds to the column heading for the list of tracking numbers in your data source. For example, if you used Tracking Number as the column heading for the list of tracking numbers in your spreadsheet, locate Tracking Number. Drag the tracking number field into the text box that you created for it.
Hello Bruce, I seem to be having a different problem altogether. I created my ticket in word using logos and text boxes as needed, ticket looks great. I followed your very clear instructions but when I did the Finish & Merge I got this message, “You cannot include DATA, NEXT, NEXTIF, or SKIPIF fields in comments, headers, footers, footnotes or endnotes.” I then click on OK and get this, “A field calculation error occurred in record 1. Bruce any help would be much appreciated. Thank you!!
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, especially in Outline Numbered paragraphs. The two methods mentioned above will remove the number and restore your cursor to the left margin.
there.. i’ve tried using recording Action but it didn’t help me.. T.T also i don’t have any idea on how to use script, (if i have to use script, can you instruct me on a step-by-step procedure or atleast pinpoint me to a thread that explains it, because the ticket’s deadline is on May 4th, and again i have 12,500 tickets to make)
How can I print 40 copies of a single page document with a serial number in the body? Serial numbers are like: ABCnn. Where ABC is fixed and nn=serial number from 1 to 40. BTW this is for word 2000 or 2003.
In most cases, the text resizes automatically to fit within the text box. If you want to control the text size, click the text box. On the Format menu, point to AutoFit Text, and then click Do Not Autofit. Select the text, and then choose a new font size from the Font Size list on the toolbar.
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:).
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:
If not, the changes you are making may not be sticking because of an Add-In or other problem with saving changes to normal.dotm. As a short-term experiment, when you have normal.dotm open type a phrase on the page like:
This tip is great but it doesn’t tell me how to start w/a number other than 1. I need to create a sheet of numbered labels starting w/1702. No matter how I enter it the only number that changes sequentially is the 1st number so my second label is 2702
Despite its difficulties and drawbacks Word’s automatic numbering can be harnessed. The best method I have seen for doing that is with outline numbering as explained by MVP Shauna Kelly in: Outline numbering in Microsoft Word. This takes a good bit of work to get it set-up, but if you get it set up in a template it is well worth the effort and most of your automatic paragraph numbering issues will be resolved.
