Default How do I restart Section numbering?

I have several sections before the appendix in my document, and I want to use
the section numbering to automatically label my appendices with letters.
When I try to insert the current section number as alphabetic, however, it
starts with appendix H. Is there a way to restart section numbering?

I'm not _entirely_ sure what "section numbering" you are talking about.
But see the following article on MVP Shauna Kelly's approach to appendix
numbering:

I suspect that Durnurd has used a field {Section \* ALPHABETIC} that
displays the section number as a letter. The appendix is really
section 8, so the field displays the letter H.

To answer the original question, no, it's impossible to restart
section numbering. Only page numbering within each section can be
restarted that way. Follow Shauna's instructions for using an
otherwise unused heading level to number your appendices.

Ahh, _that_ field.

Since the OP is used to field-numbering, I'd then either calculate a new
field or use a simple SEQ field to get to the desired result.

After inserting a section break, go to the Insert tab, and go to page
numbering. Select format page number. It will allow you to EITHER continue
numbering from the previous section OR start at 1. Same with formatting. It
will allow you to format the section differently than that of the previous
section.

But if the appendixes are starting with H, then this indicates that the
formatting has been applied to a heading that was previously numbered, and
the A, B , C numbering will apply to all sections. Unless the A, B, C is
actually being used for the page number (as opposed to the "chapter number"
included in the page number), see
http://www.ShaunaKelly.com/word/numb...ppendixes.html

And if the SECTION field is being used for numbering, there are additional
problems. Although it can be forced to display the correct number (letter),
it will not be included in a TOC.
