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

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

work for us, with as many fields as we'd have to insert with some two

Thanks for the responses.
