Terry, Not without using an automation tool (such as the FDK, FrameScript, or XSLT). Autonumbers are an artifact of formatting and as such are not represented in XML. Are you only exporting XML or do you want to import it as well? If so, if you write the autonumbers to XML, you'll need to decide what to do with that information when you read the document back into FM. Discard it? Display it instead of autonumbers? If the latter, what happens when you open the XML document back in FrameMaker? Do you drop it or use it instead of autonumbers? Is it acceptable for the result of round-tripping to be different than the original FrameMaker document? And, if you display the original autonumbers, what happens if you edit the document in a way that would change the autonumbers? --Lynne Lynne A. Price Text Structure Consulting, Inc.
