This video tutorial demonstrates how easy it is to automatically number raffle tickets in Microsoft Word. Simply download a raffle tickets template, download our number series file, and Mail Merge to create the ticket numbers.
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.
This also either requires 3 separate saved queries or 3 separate calls to DAO.Database.Execute methods, for each SQL statement, in addition to handling the error when the temporary table doesn’t exist. The simplest and clean method for this case could be this following VBA code:
This may be a toughie, I use Word to print out order forms for my shop, right now I use a stamp to give each one a unique number just for reference (you know the ones with the dials that updates whenever use). Anyways was wanting to somehow make a macro or something in Word that will automatically increment a order number on the form as I print them.
We are experiencing an almost virus-like situation with some of our dwg files. Massive file sizes that grow exponentially – even with very few entities and no xrefernces. Said files also have issues with copy-to-clipboard and paste from one dwg file to the next: objects do not paste, but dozens of sequentailly named phantom blocks are generated.
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.
Changing the numbering display affects how pages are indicated in the InDesign document, as in the Pages panel and in the page box at the bottom of a document window. The numbering display also affects how you specify page ranges when printing and exporting the document. However, the numbering display does not change the appearance of page numbers on document pages.
To ensure each number fills its own text frame, select the whole story (Command/Ctrl-A), open the Keep Options (Command/Ctrl-Option/Alt-K) and choose In Next Frame from the Start Paragraph pop-up menu.
Word includes a special sequencing field that you can use to do all sorts of numbering. You can even use the SEQ field to help create broken numbered lists. (A broken numbered list is one in which the flow of the list is interrupted by paragraphs of a different format.) This approach to creating numbered lists is particularly helpful and much less prone to the problems inherent in Word’s built-in list numbering. For the purposes of this tip, the format of the sequence field is as follows:
Bob, THANK YOU!! I’ve been trying to teach myself this topic without success…then I found a video that wasn’t helpful…but you are one heck of a teacher! I’m so thrilled to finally understand this and I’m going to save oodles of time.
There are three issues common to all three scenarios. First, the sequential number is stored separately in the table as an Integer datatype (might need Long Integer). Second, the DMax function is used to determine the last number used. Third, the number needs to be generated immediately prior to saving the record.
You lost me by step 14. I couldn’t understand where to create the no. 2… onwards, and how to save this label file, (which gets saved as a separate word file) and how to bring it in my table that I created in my original file.

Is there a way to sync callout numbers to correspond with note numbers. When I add or delete notes in my drawings it takes to much time to update the callout number in the drawings. I need to figure out a way for the note and corresponding callout to change at the same time.
Thanks for the quick reply, I think I’m a little confused by the Display aspect of this. Artifact ID is a primary key to the table I am working in and I need it to have a unique identifier that other people can search for. The previously adopted naming convention for this ID is that which I mentioned before, Collection Point ID plus a period and then a sequential number restarting at each new Collection Point ID i.e 2-1050.1, 2-1050.2, 2-1060.1 and so on. So I think I actually need to save this in the Artifact ID field. I realize this might be slightly redundant but I’m not sure how the display would work as far as searching for specific Artifact IDs in the future.
I was referring to a numbering machine, not a press. The job could be output on a copier and then run through a separate numbering machine. We have that setup in our shop, it’s very simple and to just run through a numbering machine is very inexpensive.

For example, as on the picture i have attached, I would like to write Sequences of increasing Numbers from 301 to 328 in a row, only on one page. I Don’t want to Number Pages. I am not refering to “Print Merge”.
If you know in advance that you need outline numbering for your paragraphs, you will want to choose the correct format from the Bullets and Numbering dialog box. Applying one of the preset formats to a paragraph or paragraphs that are already bulleted or numbered applies it to the entire list. There is a specific tab for outline numbers — the Outlined Numbered tab.
No, Since you will be starting with a 3 digit number initially, then you don’t need to use the Format function to pad with leading zeros. And since you won’t be using the Format function, then there will be no problem when the number goes to 4 digits.
For a University project I’m animating a custom CAT rig on an elephant; I was wondering if there is a way I can make a set of sequential images, or a video maybe, as the background so that when I scroll through the timeline the background video plays too.
I’ve just tested this in a blank Word 2010 document and it works fine. In the AutoCorrect section, I explain that you only have to set up TWO auto corrects — one for 1] (which resets the first number of a sequence to 1), and one for n] which is used to add ALL subsequent numbers (‘n’ represents any number other than 1).
I know that I can select all of the clips and then move the play head to approx 1/10 of a second and split the clips. This works except I have to go through and manually delete the bits I don’t want which is tedious enough for a video with 82 images but I am planning on http://mywebspider.com projects, doing it manually would be a nightmare. Also I could probably re-order the images manually but I am sure that there must be an easier.
The problem with the previous example is that it’s OK since you only need it in one place but if you will have several places where it is used, you now have to qualify the instance of VBA.Collection to each place – not insurmountable but too easy to get messy and hairy very fast.
The Running Sum method works great as long you are happy with creating and running an Access report, but not all requirements want the data in an Access report. Sometimes we do need to export a content of query and therefore we can’t use a report (or at least we don’t want extraneous formatting contents when we try to export a report).
If you need to create invoices for your business, you can use one of the many invoice templates found on Office.com. Although these templates are a great starting point, they won’t automatically generate unique invoice numbers—you’ll need a macro for that.
Note this works only because we create a brand new table, add an autonumber column to it as well any other columns we need then insert records into it. It’ll be contiguous – as long we don’t delete any records from the table. Unfortunately, creating a brand new table every time we run this will result in bloat of the Access file – if you can do it in a separate Access file, all the better so that you can compact it when you need to.
