Hi Carla,

Sounds to me like a matrix may be your answer with the Repair/Option Kit
Number as a left column and the steps to perform identified to the right.

For example:

Repair/Option Kit Number | Step 1|Step 2|Step 3| and so on
Number 1 X
Number 2 X

Of course, this all depends on the number of steps. If you have a bazillion
steps, then the matrix gets unwieldy.
