Dynamic line numbering formula does not reference new row after adding  a row in the table

Hello Experts,
Modify formula, col B, to refer to current row when a row is added to the table. The formulas in column B operate correctly until a row is added to the table using [Tab] or typing in the row below the bottom table row.  To correct the error, the formula in col B must be copied from a properly-referencing formula two rows above.  

Could a function using INDIRECT(row)-1 or similar approach work? Tried deleting the formulas, e.g.,
Col B problem formulas:
=IF([@[Action Items]]<>"",COUNTA(F$3:F15) & ".","")  <--Note there are double ending brackets  
Tried retyping them to have the same function construct as those in
col D which operate correctly after a new row is added:
=IF([@№]<>"",$H$1&"Ÿ.","")   <--Note there are single ending brackets in the OK Col D formulas.
File attached...
Thanks in advance

Hi,

pls try

=IF([@[Action Items]]<>"";COUNTA(INDIRECT("F$3:F"&ROW(B3)) )& ".";"")
