"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

first, create a numbered list using the A., B. ... list style. Create a new style for this list (ex. A1)

now, Home tab ―> click the small arrow to the right of the Numbering icon and select Define New Number Format ―> replace the . beside the A with the number 1 (A. becomes A1) ―> click OK.

That's it
