Where else do you suppose the numbers would come from?

What could be simpler than selecting the table and clicking twice on the same numbering button you used to generate the auto-numbering???

Perhaps you spend a little more time learning to use Word. The whole of this thread evidences a rush to use Word to produce a result without taking the time to learn the basics. Perhaps too, you should set out your requirements properly when posting questions on forums - and seek help with things you don't understand - instead of complaining after the event you didn't get the results you wanted.



If you want to remove the 'auto' part of the numbering, simply select the range you want to convert, then run a little macro like:
Code:
Sub LockNumbers()
Selection.Range.ListFormat.ConvertNumbersToText (wdNumberAllNumbers)
End Sub
You can then do whatever formatting you want with the numbers...

For PC macro installation & usage instructions, see: http://www.gmayor.com/installing_macro.htm

Likewise, it's also quite simple to change the colour of any given number (without removing the 'auto' part of the numbering). All it takes is a little time learning to use the tools.
