Rick,

At the risk of sounding stupid, how do you know what letter corresponds to
the symbol you want? That's the crux of my question.

Thanks to Ann and Shlomo for reminding me of how to use the hex code. That
worked just fine and was the method I'd used before, but I'd forgotten the
"formula" for how to use the hex code.

If you don't want to mess with character codes, set your desired bullet font
as a character tag (for example, Dingbats, Wingdings) and use the character
tag in the Automnumber field. This way you can merely use the letter that
corresponds with the character in the bullet font that you want. For
example, the letter 'N' equates with the large square in Zapf Dingbats.

You can also use this method to set a different font size for the bullet if
you wish, although you may get baseline alignment problems. There is a MIF
hack for this which I forget but which has been documented here before.
