Benzi (and Sarah and anyone else who is interested),

You don't have to go so far as a macro to create easy-to-manage numbered
lists in Word.

Yes, create a style with the hanging indent, etc and use the LISTNUM fields,
but define them as AutoText instead. I have two defined, one for "1."
(defined as !!) and one for the rest of the list (defined as @@). This way,
I don't have to futz around with a macro every time I want a numbered list

If I add an item in the middle of the list, I simply select the rest of the
items and press F9 to update the fields. I've had no problems at all with
managing lists in this manner.
