Hello Experts,

I have this table with columns.
I want to add a column that would have a Count.
For example, it is a count for each row from 1 - last row.

How can that be done?  I imagine it is possibly by use of a field or maybe some other way.  maybe there is somethign already built inside of word for this.

thank you

please see attached.

It would need to be something rather simple because I might have to recount after deleting rows.

Try selecting the column and selecting the Numbering button in the Paragraph group on the Home tab

To have the numbers in a separate column, Insert column -> select column -> select Numbering button in the Paragraph group
