creating an autonumber in a word 2007 document

We've create a single page gift certificate that we are giving away to select individuals.  What I'm trying to do is to create some type of autonumbering field so that each certificate has a different certificate number when printed, i.e. certifiate 1001, certificate 1002, certificate 1003, etc, etc.....

Would anyone know how I might go about doing this?

I've played with using page number, but then when printing I realized that I'm still always printing page one.  I'm at a loss.  Any ideas?

Thanks a million.
