Default word 2007 equations

When I create an equation display on its own line, Word automatically
centers it. If I add some text on the same line, then Word thinks the
equation is "inline" and uses slightly different symbols.

Anyway, what I need is to label equations on the right. For example:

[Equation Centered Here]
(Equation 4)

Many math and physics books do this. How can I do this? As I said,
if I manually write "(Equation 4)" off to the right, Word would switch
to "inline" equations.

Default word 2007 equations

Create a two column table, reduce the width of the right column so that it
is just big enough to display the label and then maximise the width of the
left column. Insert your equation in the left column. Use Ctrl+Alt+u to
turn of the borders and no one will know.

Alternatively, if you want the equation visually centered, make a
three-column table. Set the width of column 1 equal to the width of column 3
and leave it empty.
