replace variables (auto-numbered paragraph numbers) with constants



  • 1. What does "PROP DLL not loaded" mean?
    I have a resume that was sent to me from my school. Every time I open it this comes up? Thank You
  • 2. Citations in Footnote format
    hello, i'm doing a document where i have to cite sources. I start by creating a citation source, then a footnote for the citation. When i go to the bottom to enter my footnote, I click citation and then the citation that I want to insert. However, it is in the wrong format. It appears something like (Microsoft, 1999) when I want it to display Microsoft (1999). The Benefits of Windows 2000. Some Magazine Company, 2. Any ideas? Thanks!
  • 3. Word Mail Merge not picking up filtered data from Excel
    Word 2007, Excel 2007, XP I am trying to use Mail Merge in Word (envelopes) from a large Excel spreadsheet. The Excel spreadsheet has several columns that have been filtered. I turn the filter off before saving the spreadsheet (saving the filtered information). When I merge, ALL the information on the spreadsheet is coming over - which rather defeats the purpose of filtering the spreadsheet in the first place. I can copy the filtered spreadsheet onto a new spreadsheet and then the merge seems to work, but should I have to do this? Any ideas? Thanks.
  • 4. Automatic Repeat of text on each page
    I would like to set up a 'return to top of document' button that will automatically appear on each new page, like a header or footer will. I could add this in the header of footer except the header or footer need to be activated to access this 'back to top of document' button. Thoughts?

replace variables (auto-numbered paragraph numbers) with constants

Postby emFwc3Bhbg » Tue, 04 Mar 2008 15:14:00 GMT

I often write a particular type of technical document in which each paragraph 
is numbered (using auto-numbering, so that I can insert new paragraphs and 
not have to re-number the whole document).  Is there a way, when I'm sure 
that I won't need to make any changes, that I can have the variable paragraph 
numbers repalced with their current value?  I am asking because someone else 
wants to be able to copy some of my paragraphs into a new Word document 
without losing the paragraph number.

The following macro should do the trick

Sub NumbersAutoToText()
End Sub


Test it on a *copy* of the document.

4.Replace a constant with an incrementing number

Is there a way in Word to replace a constant with a self incrementing number?
For example, I have a 500+ page Word document, it has a fixed phrase XYZ 
repeated many, many times in the document.  I need to replace XYZ with a self 
incrementing number where I can specify what the starting number would be; 
first occurance of XYZ becomes 101000, second occurance of XYZ becomes 101001 
Can I use 'Find and Replace' for what I need to do?  Or do I have to get 
into Macros?
