Default MS Word 2007 line numbering in tables

I have a 5 page table in which I need to add line numbers (not cell numbers) The reason it is a table is to separate different sections of text.


The cells have varying numbers of lines depending on the volume of text.
I need the line numbers to ignore the cells and be advancing and continuous throughout the document. is this possible?

Thanks

Not possible using the line numbering feature.


You could add an additional cell at the beginning of each row to hold number and then either use a SEQuence Field to populate or use numbering attached to styles.

Word's line numbering already ignores tables entirely.
