I want to have a numbered list of tables in a Word document so that I can easily add or delete content from the list. For example, I would like by list to consist of 3 tables, numbered 1, 2, and 3:
1. Table 1
2. Table 2
3. Table 3
However when I try to insert a table into (for example number 1), the first cell of the table gets a number 2, the next cell gets 3, etc., and then the first cell in Table 2 gets number 4.
What I want is that the Tables do not take part in the numbering scheme at all - I want to Table to be independent of the bulleted list, so that I can (for example) put the cursor in between the second and the third list item and insert a new Table (lets say Table 2A) and the original Table 3 now gets a list number in front of it of 4.
I can't seem to figure out how to do this in Word. Also I would like the list number to be on the same line as the first line of the Table, but when I insert a Table into a list it always seems to start one line below the bullet number.
I could abandon the use of bulleted lists altogether, but I would like to use them for ease of inserting new items and automatically bumping the numbering down one item.
Any help would be appreciated.
