I’m using Column A of a spreadsheet to number some items in Column B. I’ve been using Excel’s automatic series-filling function, where you drag down from the lower right corner of a cell. However, since some of the rows in Column B are empty, and I don’t want them numbered, I have to stop numbering and manually “jump” over the blanks in Column A. Is there a way to automatically number down in Column A, while skipping over the blanks and continuing where I left off? I.e. 1 2 3 4 5 ? Thanks much. Try this in A1: =IF(B1<>“”,COUNTA($B$1:B1),”…
If you use the Form Wizard, controls will be named with the field name the control is bound to. But that name can be changed. This trips up a lot of people because my code samples use a naming convention that is not what is automatically generated. So you just need to make sure you use the correct name for the object. The name is shown in the Name property on the Other tab (Not the Caption property). To determine what field in your table the control is bound to check the ControlSource property. It should be bound to the PONum field.
If you want to save all that work you just did, click the Save button. As you exit Word, the Building Blocks (the feature Quick Parts and AutoText are grouped under) are being saved in your Normal template. If you’re really up for a challenge, you could start a whole new discovery template with its own set of Building Blocks like the ones above, then distribute it to your work group so they can get the benefit of your new-found expertise.
I have form with 4 text boxes. First txtBox is protocol number (this number consists of two letters, current year and increasing numbers: eg: KU-2013/0001). Next field is date field. Then I have description field (memo) and Operator name (text).
if you prefer they just type in the number, you can parse out the number into the Collection Point and Sequence components, then use a DLookup to return the RecordID which can be used to find the record. Like I said, the user never sees the autonumber ID, its meaningless to them.
I want to a sequential number to fill in automatically each time the form is filled out. Malissa, A simple way would be to use something like this, you could assign it to a button, an open or before print event. Sheets(“Sheet1”).Range(“A1”).Value = _ Sheets(“Sheet1”).Range(“A1”).Value + 1 For other ways to do this or if this is going to be used in a temple have a look here http://www.mcgimpsey.com/excel/udfs/sequentialnums.html — Paul B Always backup your data sequential numbering in coreldraw trying something new Please post any response to the newsgroups so others…
You may wonder whether typing 1, 2, and 3 would be easier than using the ListNum field. Although doing that may be easier initially, the value of using the ListNum field becomes apparent when you cut and paste. When a paragraph contains multiple numbered items that you move or delete, Word automatically updates the ListNum fields. Using ListNum fields assures you of accurate numbering within a paragraph throughout the document.
Word allows you to automatically number items in your document. For instance, you can automatically number figures, tables, or illustrations. If you later reorder these items, Word automatically updates the numbers so they are in order. To sequentially number items in your text, follow these steps:
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.
You can add or remove consecutive page numbers for an entire publication by working from a master page. If you have multiple master pages in your publication, you need to repeat these steps for every master page you use.
Microsoft Word includes fields that enable customized data insertion, including Word Count, Page Count and Sequence, which is used to create incremental counters. You can create a business plan using numbered content such as headings or paragraphs, or a simple table with numbered row blocks using the “SEQ” field name.
Entering an SEQ field manually is easy enough, but if you’re working with this field a lot, there’s a much easier way: You can use AutoCorrect to insert them into text. Create the AutoText entry as follows:
Let’s move on to the Subhead 1 style. Note the same list name (FM Numbering), the level designation (now it’s a 2), the number (^H.^2.^t) and that restart numbers at this level is on after any previous level.
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.
Sequential numbering is commonly used on carbonless forms, also known as NCR forms like invoices, purchase orders, contracts, etc. It can also be used on other printed items like raffle tickets where you need a unique identifying number.
Sequential/Serial numbering is available on many products such as business cards, flyers, and posters (at an additional cost) but can only be done with our Digital Output printing service (not available with Offset Output). This service is not included as standard on our products and requires a Custom Print Quote.
To recap. The NZ(DMax(etc.) will take the highest value of the PONum field in tblPO and increment it. You then have to store that value somewhere. If you assign it to a control on a form, that control has to have a ControlSource of the filed in the table. Also, you need to save the record before it gets to the table.
Word comes with some default Outline Numbering schemes that already have Styles attached but that doesn’t mean you are only limited to those styles or those schemes. For more information on styles, see the chapter on Styles.
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.
A sequence is created independently of the tables by using the CREATE SEQUENCE statement. Options enable you to control the increment, maximum and minimum values, starting point, automatic restarting capability, and caching to improve performance. For information about the options, see CREATE SEQUENCE.
Yes a template PSD file a ticket sheet multiple tickets with text layers for ticket numbers is the way to go. You should be able generate the data file required using a spread sheet to enumerate the ticket numbers and write the csv file.
The only warnings that InDesign gives you that some of the text in the selected text frame uses a different font are: the Font field in the Character panel is blank, and the Font submenu (under the Type menu) has hyphens next to each font.
You can add many of these items by using text variables. InDesign includes several preset variables, such as Creation Date and File Name. You can modify these variables, and you can create your own. For example, you can create a variable that displays the first use of a Heading paragraph style in the header or footer. Once you create or edit the variables you need, you assemble them on the master page to create your header and footer, and then you apply the master page to the appropriate document pages.
Hi, this is a great write up. I am very new to InDesign and i print onto a range of products and my first order with sequential numbering came up (serial numbers), I have the template made in illustrator and i also have the numbers added (00001 on all of the art work). A friend told me InDesign has a function for automatically incrasing the numbers by 1 for each art work. I have 105 pieces per template, is there a way to import the design and then sort the number (already text edible) and then save as a pdf then send to print?
With dragging this fill handle, you can also fill the column of cells with sequence numbers such as these formats: “000-001,000-002,000-003…” and the sequence numbers with prefix “KTE-0001, KTE-0002, KTE-0003… ”.
