Why not just place these items into a Word table? That way you don't have to
change your system of numbering and Word won't "assume" that you are
creating a numbered list.

<snip>My preference has been the current meeting date plus a
sequential number:

000530-1 Kevin to sound out management, re: first-aid
training for employees.
Update: 00/05/31, management sez employees
intending accident or illness should get their
own first-aid training.
Note: some additional consciousness-raising for
management may be in order.
Status: Ongoing.

000530-2 Matt to revise floorplan before next workplace

Word likes to view such items as numbered lists. When I move
one from the New Action Items list to the Open Action Items
list or the Closed Action Items list... Word re-numbers them.
That's a no-no.
Also, Word insists on truncating leading zeros -- if I turn that
off, it messes up some other, unrelated numeric items.

Is there a way to leave the usually-helpful Word features ON,
but to cleanly designate some text as "can't touch this"?? I need
to use word because the minutes are shared by many word users.
