Decide whether you want the first or last occurrence of the style that’s applied on the page. First On Page is the first paragraph (or character) that begins on a page. If there is no occurrence of the style on the page, the previous occurrence of the applied style is used. If there is no previous occurrence in the document, the variable is empty.
Click that, and a placeholder will appear where your cursor was, which will later insert the ticket number at that point. Do that twice for each ticket (once for the counterfoil, once for the main ticket). You should end up with something like this:
Creating a sequential list of numbers, in Word, sounds like an intimidating task. Sure, you can create a numbered list quickly enough, but that feature works with additional text – you’re numbering something. If you want a list of just numbers, you have to work a bit harder. Word’s SEQ field might come to mind, but that solution is better suited to template-type numbering. In order words, this field works great if you’re numbering documents, labels, and so on. It doesn’t work so well if you just want to create a list of sequential numbers. You can use it that way, but it’ll be more work than it’s worth.
The first page of the index in my InDesign file (page “a”) begins on a left facing page in the document – but prints as a right facing page (starts a new piece of paper). This leaves a blank left-facing page before Page A – and the rest of the index prints with odd pages on right and even pages on left.
Hi, I need to start my requests for admission with number 2798. I tried what was suggested in the comments, but nothing worked for me. I keep getting an error message. I am using Word 2007. I appreciate your feedback!
Note: If you turn the feature off and create your list manually, you can’t select and change the list all at once. For example, you can’t select the list and change the color of all of the numbers at one time.
If you save your Quick Part in a template other than BuildingBlocks.dotx keying in your abbreviation should make AutoComplete trigger so you do not have to use F3. It doesn’t matter which gallery you save it in either.
Thank you for these instructions!! I’m using them to auto number my son’s baseball team raffle tickets which we hand numbered last year (UGH!). I followed the instructions exactly but for some reason the numbering is starting at 2 every time. I did deselect the checkbox about the column headers which seems the obvious culprit. Any ideas? I’m using Word on a PC. Thanks!!
The Renumber/Refresh List toolbar command is used to renumber an existing numbered list or to refresh a list after editing. For example if item 3. is deleted from a list by editing then you can use this tool to refresh the list. You can also use the Renumber/Refresh command to number or renumber a selection of list paragraphs with any chosen starting number.
First, you have to use YOUR field and control names. The ones I use are samples. The error you are getting indicated you do not have a control named txtProject. So you have to substitute the correct name of the control. bound to the ProjectID field. By the way it is not a good idea to the octothorpe(#) as part of a field name. A controlname may be different from a fieldname. The name property of a control is on the Other tab in the Properties dialog.
Rhia Wieclawek & Cassy http://mywebspider.com This is the solution I ended up with and so far its working well. The only problem is that I will have to manually configure this workflow at the start of each project but that’s not a big job.
