Tom, go to the Tools | AutoCorrect dialog box and select the
AutoFormat as You Type tab. Clear the Automatic bulleted lists check
box and clear the Automatic numbered lists check box. That should do
it.

You should get your hands on a copy of Woody Leonhard's Word 97
Annoyances. That's where I found the tip for turning off
autonumbering. It's an excellent book because it describes the way
Word REALLY works, not the way Microsoft wants you to think that it
works. If I could only have one book on Word, this one would be it.

Regards
Keith
