Unstructured Frame 7.2 on XP V2002 SP2: I've got 400 files in the book.
I cannot get a "work package number" autonumber to work properly in the
files at the beginning of the book. "P:000<n+>" just returns "0001".
I've gone into the document menu on both the book and individual files
and set the "Page" numbering feature to "Continue."  Updated book
numerous times. Re-imported formats. When I add a hard number to the
autonumber in an individual file, it immediately responds with the
correct value on the page, so apparently the tag and function are
working properly.

- What will fix these random "bad" autonumbers?

- If I "hardwire" the bad autonumber (change it from "P:000<n+>" to
"P:0008", for example) with the following <n+> numbers pick up normally
("P:0009", etc., in this example)?

This is crazy. It is just an autonumber. I've been using FM for 13 years
and I know it is not suppose to be this hard to troubleshoot an
autonumber problem. Except for digesting 400 files in the book, it
should work like a champ, but it is not. What stupid thing am I doing
