I have word 2000 at work and home. When I set out with a doc at home I put in 1 cat 2 dog 3 rat etc under each other and there is NO indent and NO jumping the gun putting numbers into your mouth (sml) and putting the next no in. If you want to go from 3 to 5 no problem. But the one at work, insists on indenting para, and puts its own nos in, even when you are finished. You have to ^ShftM to take it back to margin. Surely then if same prog works one way at office and other at home, it must be in the setup opts, but for the life of me I have looked and looked and cannot find anything.

Leetim, There is indeed a setting for this. 1. From the Tools Menu, choose AutoCorrect Options. 2. Go to the Autoformat As You Type tab. 3. Uncheck Automatic Numbered Lists (and anything else to want to stop "helping" you). 4. Click OK. That should do it for you! - Hammer Search Strategy ---------------- None. Personal experience.
