First let’s look at AUTOTEXT methods. AUTOTEXT (or now Building Blocks) are Crown Jewels of Word that many people never use. Here is a quick primer. I hope by now that your interest is piqued and you have already reproduced the example fields shown above.
So, if you wanted to use this idea in a form or datasheet, let me stop and first remind you – if this is going to be non-updatable, you can just embed a report as a subreport within a form and thus use Running Sum. But let’s discuss the case where you need to be able to edit data in the forms, even with sequential numbering generated for the data you are viewing. This means we need to be able to tie a sequential number to a specific row.
Does anybody have an easy way to set up sequential numbering in Coreldraw? Our shop has to lay out unit number plaques for vinyl cutting and sometimes my employee has to manually type in hundreds of numbers. I’ve read all the print merge suggestions for raffle tickets and such but I need the numbers entered into an object and not during the print process.
The WooCommerce Sequential Order Numbers Pro plugin allows your store to have sequential, rather than random, order numbers. Additionally you can customize your order numbers by setting a starting number, order number length, and custom prefixes and suffixes. Instead of your order numbers looking like 15, 16, 37, and so on, they could now be WT-01000-UK, WT-01001-UK, or whatever format you prefer!
Right now it is just one page, so I am guessing I would need to duplicate the page X amount of times to get up to the number I want. In the past I have just printed the one page multiple times but then I would think this way I would get several copies with codes 1001 – 1010.
The blog is pretty much step by step. Where it may not be that specific is, because, these are decisions the developer needs to make. For example, where to put the DMax expression is a matter of your workflow so I can’t tell you where to put it. I’ve given tips in the blog to help you decide. If you are having issues, then please give me more info about your application and I can suggest things.
Sequence fields are the first method that Word developed for automatic numbering and, in the words of John McGhie, the most robust. They are virtually unbreakable. Here is a link to the Microsoft Office reference page for them in Word 2010. As far as I know, the syntax and the switches have remained unchanged since before Windows.
My page numbers all appear onscreen in my document where they should be, but they do not appear when I print the pages. Am using the same template as I did with a document I prepared a couple of months ago and did not have this problem when I printed all the pages in that document. The master page thing is already a done deal.
The first thing we need to do is name this numbering sequence. I’m going to use the letters “int” for http://mywebspider.com Just click your mouse cursor into the Field Codes field next to SEQ, hit your spacebar to insert a blank space after SEQ, then type “int” and place another space after it.
we have printed AP checks using the check number from 0000000001 to 0000000006, but we havent posted those batches. we have only one checbook. Now can we restart the check number from 000001. Then do we need to delete the previous batches for checks printed. What is the best approach in this regard. Thanks in Advance, Arun. In the Post Payables Checks batch window (Transactions > Purchasing > Post Checks), choose the batch in question, then select Reprint Checks from the drop-down list. Enter 000001 for your starting check number. You will also need to go …
This article describes how to dynamically rank rows when you perform a SELECT statement by using a flexible method, which may be the only possible solution and which is faster than the procedural solution. Row numbering or ranking is a typical procedural issue. The solutions are typically based on loops and temporary tables; therefore, they are based on SQL Server loops and cursors. This technique is based on an auto join. The chosen relationship is typically “is greater than.” Count how many times each element of a particular set of data fulfills the relationship “is greater than” when the set is compared to itself.
Yes, it is certainly possible to do it without VBA at all. One possible method is to write a subquery that counts all rows up to this row. This also assumes there is a primary key that you can use and you can define a sort order. Here’s a sample SQL:
What if I need to create 200 vouchers and each has a unique code not in any sort of numeric or alphabetical order. The codes are listed in excel under one column. Is there a way to link the text frame on a master page where the codes should be placed to the excel document to assign one code per voucher?
As you’ve seen, the identifier is built using other data besides the sequence number. Since this other data is a part of the record, you don’t want to store this identifier since that means storing the same data twice. That’s why we use an expression to display the identifier rather than store it.
1. Create a text frame on the Master page, while dragging, split the frame horizontally and vertically using arrows on the keyboard (Gridify your frame), this way all frames are threaded, you may do the same on both pages of the Masters (Spread) but make sure you link last frame of left Master page and first text frame of right Master page.
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.
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.
To get this type of sequence, you add a ‘zero’ switch (as partially described here: http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/word-help/insert-and-format-field-codes-HA010338798.aspx). Your field codes should look like this:
Well, you could do it with two lists (using the List feature). Or perhaps you could do it with cross-references, like this: http://indesignsecrets.com/synchronize-text-in-more-than-one-place-in-an-indesign-document.php
This works well unless you’re trying to add these fields to text boxes. In Word 2013 it seems like it may work for a text box or two, but then decides to start the numbering over. Is there a way to get this to work with multiple text boxes?
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!!
In this tutorial, we’ll explain how to do an easy setup in InDesign for automatically numbered raffle tickets. We will look at the handy “Data Merge Tool,” which is a great time-saver. Let’s jump into this quick tutorial!
Tip Outlined Numbered Lists give you the option to use numbering and bullets in the same scheme. Select the particular level, and in the Number Style field, scroll down and choose one of the bullet choices for that level.

Thanks for the auto numbering info. I got it to work, well sort of. We have a set of interrogatories already set up without auto numbering. Do I have to change each interrogatory question in order to get them to auto number?
So if you encountered this problem, then you didn’t follow the instructions completely (which is OK) and appear to be automatically generating the number whenever the record is accessed. If that’s the case, then you are risking duplication because you are not saving the generated number immediately. Rather then try to test if a number already exists as you seem to be doing, you should not automatically generate the number, but trigger the generation from some action in the form.
I am having trouble with this procedure. My situation is almost identical to example #2. I want to populate RecordNumber on my form with a date number like “130001, 130002, etc.” where “13” is the year based on a date automatically generated in the OpenDate field in tblLogRecords. OpenDate is a date/time type field that has a default value of the date the record is created and is not editable. I have added a field called Sequence to tblLogRecords and it is a Number, Long Integer type. I also created a bound control for Sequence on my form. I have a completely separate autonumber field as the PK.
Is there a way to auto number files with the file number (less .jpeg) and save without having to let my computer grind to a halt, as it does using Automate, contact sheet. The objective is to create a preview set for distribution to clients with the file number annotated at bottom centre. Also, is there any way of creating the text/font/colour/stroke of my choice?
