2. In the Insert Sequence Number dialog box, please click New button to expand this dialog box. In the lower left panel, create your own sequential numbers, at the same time, you can preview the result of your customized sequence in the lower right list box, see screenshot:
We’ll start with the simplest, scenario 1. Acme will use a straight sequential number for its Purchase Order numbers. Add a (Long?) Integer field to the table named PONum. Add a control to your Purchase Order form bound to that field. Then use the following expression to populate that control:

Sure it does, i just suggested ID since this seems to be a possibly text-heavy document, in which case ID could be best for its other formatting and page layout capabilities. – Lucian May 17 ’17 at 4:24
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.
Error Message: I/O Read error The flash drive I am using to move files decided to give me this i/o read error on all or most of my corel files. My back up files too. I’ve done a recovery but files still…
Tip You can use these shortcut keys, the numbering button or the Style dialog box in the Format menu to apply the correct numbering level. You can also apply numbering that is linked to heading styles by clicking the Style box drop-down arrow.
For larger numbers, increase the interval between each sequence and use that number of pages. What I suggested is based on 34 pages of 6 so the interval is 34. For each additional page of 6 you would increase that interval between the starting numbers by one.
First of all let me note that I’m a novice at this, never used the VB editor before. I’m making an invoice template for work, but I keep getting this error “Compile error: Expected line number or label or statement or end of statement” I went over the code a hundred times, but I can’t seem to figure out how to get it right, I hope you can help me. Here’s the code I used: Sub CreateInvoiceNumber() Invoice = System.PrivateProfileString(“C:UserstomheffelsDocumentsInvoice AGinvoice-number.rtf”, “InvoiceNumber”, “Invoice”) If Invoice = “” Then Invoice = 1 Else Invoice = Invoice + 1 End If System.PrivateProfileString(“C:UserstomheffelsDocumentsInvoice… Read more »
I work for a print shop and recently acquired CorelDraw X3 (previously used Quark). I have an order for 2,000 membership cards (3 to an 8 1/2 x 11 page which I will perforate), and I need them sequentially numbered. Is this possible on Corel? PLEASE tell me it is. I have messed with the Print Merge but apparently I’m doing something wrong.
The Current Page Number is a special character inserted in a text frame on a page or master page (recommended) where the page number will appear, by selecting Type>Insert Special Character>Markers>Current Page Number. You can put as many of these special characters on a page as you’d like and they will all pick up the current page number.
Note Word does not convert typing to an automatic numbered list if the AutoFormat option is not activated. From the Tools menu, choose AutoCorrect. Select the AutoFormat As You Type tab, and check the option for Automatic numbered lists.
It makes me think there’s an issue with the spaces I have used in my field names but I have been trying every combination of double quotes and square brackets and when writing the code in the Event Procedure I don’t get any error messages.
I get an error with this code but it is something I literally copied from a post in this thread where you said it works every time and simply replaced the names of fields and tables with those of my project.
Before you complete the merge, preview the merge results to make sure that the tracking numbers will display as you want them to in your publications. You can preview the merge in two ways: While you are refining the layout to review the layout of the individual coupon or gift certificate, or when you are getting ready to print, to preview the arrangement of coupons or gift certificates on the printed sheet.
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.
Ok, so what don’t you understand in the blog? You will need to create a new field for the sequence number. But the blog explains how to set this all up. If there is anything specific you are having trouble with, feel free to ask.
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.
I had the same problem and found out the same thing, that it’s the order of creation that seem to govern the lists numerical order. It felt intuitive that the order in the layer-panel should be where this could be managed, although perhaps there’s some reason for why that isn’t a good idea that I havn’t thought of.
Select Continue Numbers From Previous Document In Book to resume numbering the list from the previous document (you must choose Continue Numbers Across Stories to activate this option), or deselect this option to start the list in the current document at 1 (or A).
In the other tab for the PONum field, I typed in txtPONum as you had mentioned earlier. It is just not generating a number. I don’t even know what question to ask now, ’cause I do not know where this is going wrong. I’ll keep trying something…
Note: If you have already created a business information set, your business contact information and logo automatically replaces some of the placeholder text. For more information, see Create, change, or remove business information data.
I’m making a research report on landscape design. The final document would have perhaps pages like 80-90 or so. Earlier I used to make reports and multipage documents on MS Word. While making the contents page, I would have to look at each and every chapter’s name, subheading and then add the page number manually. Is there any automatic system in InDesign?
While I’m commenting, let me ask something…I have the pdf of the InDesgin Help on http://ringringpromotions.org computer and I adore the formatting. The whitespace and fonts are perfect and so eacy on the eye. Would it be possible for someone to please send me exactly what’s in that template so I don’t have to figure it out myself? Please pass on my compliments to the designer!
If you need to apply numbering within a paragraph rather than to the entire paragraph, you use Word’s ListNum feature. Using the ListNum feature will allow you to take advantage of the numbering system you’re currently using in your document (it will use the one you implemented most recently if you’re not currently using a numbering system). The ListNum Field is available in Word 97 and later and interacts with multi-level list numbering (which should be linked to styles as set forth here). Here is a brief explanation of differences between the ListNum field and the Seq field.

Prefixes can be used to reference departments, subsidiaries or divisions of an enterprise. Assets purchased in a specific year can be encoded using a prefix as well. Letter prefixes or suffixes would make a barcode read C-01001 or 01001-C. Sequentially numbered asset tags can also be created without barcodes. Color coded asset labels can be added to the mix if extra levels of complexity are required.
