Thanks much, Pat!!!

I think I was missing one important piece in my knowledge/efforts ...
the "x" you mention below - to get the number into its own series. I
will try that!

Thanks again,

Hi Z,

If I understand what you're asking, it should be pretty easy. Add this
to the para numbering style: <n+>. If you want it in it's own series, at
this: x:<n+> where x is any letter that is not being used by another
number scheme.

Subject: Any way to set an absolute numbering scheme that is

Hi, all.

I am trying to set up a mechanism to use an absolute numbering scheme
for certain paragraphs that is *independent* of the other numbering in
the document.

For example, I may have a Heading 1 that increases 1, 2, 3, etc.,
Heading 2 that increases 1.1, 1.2, 1.3, etc. (and gets reset to .1 in
each Heading 1), etc.

But, independent of these, I have some paragraphs (currently inside
tables) that need to have a number that also auto-increments (like "Spec
1", "Spec 2", etc.) but *completely* independently from the chapter and
section numbering! The reason I want to use *automatically* is obvious
... if I insert a paragraph into the document with that format, I want
to have all the later ones after that point automatically get updated
with the auto-number.

I looked for a Autonumber Format in Building Block that I could use for
this purpose (in the Paragraph Designer), but no luck. Getting the
letters "Spec " in there is easy, but there does not seem to be a
numbering scheme that I can use for this ...

So ... is there any way to achieve the desired result?
