I have a requirement to generate auto numbers as a sequence in Microsoft Word 2010.
For example:-

RQ-10010
RQ-10020
RQ-10030
.
.
.
RQ-10100
RQ-10110
.
.
.

Note that the number remains a constant five digit number.

Request some help to accomplish this type of sequence as auto-numbering in MS Word 2010.

Thanks

In your document right click the cursor where you want to place such a paragraph
numbering | Click Define new paragraph format
Enter the test as for exampl RQ- leaving the pre-existing field value of 1 as is
Now enter this and return to:

numbering | Click but this time select numbering value.  You can set this to 10001 and from point on it ought to be fine for your needs, (incrementing in 1's of course).

If you redefine the numbering for blocks of 10:
    RQ- leaving the pre-existing field value of 1 as is and adding a zero on the end
    Set the numbering value to 1001

then you will have to insert intermediate paragraph numbers manually.

With the previous 'step of one option' in order to jump in tens you will need to redefine the paragraph starting number each time.

Certainly we can do something with a macro ... will fixed text for the numbers work and what is the document structure like - i.e. how do we identify when the number is required for insertion, (we can update easy enough its just to know when a new para for example needs marking?
