Tried this --doesn't work-- all the steps revert to number 1 in the
NetHelp output. 10 steps, all labeled 1. Also, the so-called Help file
recommends to use LISTNUM after Word 2002.
Any ideas? Or specific instructions on how to use this? The MS Word Help
(?? Why even call it that???) has NO instructions on how to do it, just
descriptions of how aspects of it works--but not HOW to execute it. Very

Sounds like a job for AutoNumLgl fields, which update automatically
