Got a couple of excellent responses to my question about suppressing Word's
autnumbering kludge. We have to suppress it because if you interrupt the
sequence of paragraphs with graphics, the numbering sequence breaks or
becomes unreliable.

Steve Holland got me in the ballpark with the suggestion to go to Tools >
Options > Autoformat. In 97, the check box isn't in the same place so I had
to hunt for it, and I was looking for something (even in the help file)
that said "autonumbering", but there isn't any such thing. You have to
track it earth with the keyword "autoformat". Regardless, it's shut off now.

Win Day had an even more intriguing idea, using SEQ fields. That may not
work for us, with as many fields as we'd have to insert with some two
hundred graphics, but I don't see why it wouldn't function.

Thanks for the responses.
