You could try selecting the first column and making a numbered list with the Numbering button in the Paragraph group on the Home tab.

Or you could use some VBA code like this:
    Dim tbl As Table
    Dim r As Integer
    
    Set tbl = ActiveDocument.Tables(1)
    For r = 1 To tbl.Rows.Count
        tbl.Cell(1, 1).Range.Text = r
    Next r

Open in new window

If it's a 'new' table then add a paragraph number to the first column and each time you add a row the number will update accordingly?
