Instructions and Help about word seq starting number

In this demonstration I'm gonna make a numbered list using sequence numbers there's two key steps to this procedure setting up the field codes for the list and setting up the styles so that the list looks good so let's start with the field codes so first of all I'm going to go here and this is where my list is going to start okay so I'm going to go to insert on the insert panel and then quick parts and then within their field and then I'm gonna look for seek seq which is the sequence number which is the one that we use for this okay and you'll notice that it has an identifier and then switches okay so the identifier is going to be my list the identifier is just a variable name if you're if you're into programming you'll understand what that means but the idea is is that what the current number is is stored in that name and so that if I have six different lists then my seek list it'll it'll keep them apart so that I when I it's important when you do sub lists that each sub list has a different variable name okay and then I'm gonna add a switch which is just sort of like a tag to tell it something and the switch is gonna be our and the number one and what that's saying is the backslash R says that start my numbering here and then the number one says start at number one so this way that field that I add is going to have a number one so when I hit OK you'll notice it has a 1 and then I'm gonna put a dot and a tab character now I want to see what that field code is actual is actually so I'm gonna highlight it and go shift f9 and that shows me what the value is I'm then gonna copy it and move it down to my second line and if I go go and paste it control V here and again the same thing highlight and go shift f9 I can see it here now of course because it has the r1 it's gonna say 1 again well I don't want my field to be 1 here this isn't gonna be my second one so I'm just gonna take that switch out with that switch out I should now have my number my number 2 so what I do here is I now then close this so I don't so I see the values and of course it says two ones but that's because it hasn't been updated yet so I hit f9 again and the field updates to two like magic so now I'm gonna highlight these values here ctrl C and I'm gonna put it for each of the item so you notice it's gonna be two every time and that's because it again it hasn't.
