Default How do I create a numbered list of bookmarks

In tables of referenced documents, I used to have a numbered list in the
first column. I could select the number and use Insert Bookmark to create a
bookmark for the reference. I could then cross-reference the bookmark later
in the text. The cross-reference text that appeared was the number. If I
then inserted new references, I could renumber all reference numbers in the
list by selecting the table column and using F9.

I just started a new job and don't have a table to cut and paste from and
don't remember how I initially set this up. Can you point me towards some
instructions?

Default How do I create a numbered list of bookmarks

Which version of Word?

The steps you list seem to be exactly how to do it -- what are you
missing?

Default How do I create a numbered list of bookmarks

If you just create a numbered list (FormatBullets and Numbering), you can't
select the number itself as the bookmark text. I found out that it would
work if I used InsertField, set the Category to 'Numbering' and the select
'ListNum' from the Field Names. This will insert a number in the table cell
that you can, then, highlight and select InsertBookmark. Then when you
cross reference that bookmark later on, the number will be displayed as the
bookmark text. The numbers will automatically resort if new table entries
are inserted or if existing entries are deleted. I figured it out using
brute force. I would think that it would be a fairly common thing to do -
for which a help topic would exist. (I'm using Word 2003.)

Numbered items are already automatically bookmarked by Word. You need only
use Insert | Reference | Cross-reference and insert the "Paragraph number"
of the numbered item.

Hello -I'm trying to do something similar but my numbered points are in a table and don't show up as paragraphs to select. Is there any way of selecting that column of numbers 1 to 100 and automatically create 100 bookmarks?

It's easy. On top you can choose the function of numbered.

water up to 1 meter for 30 minutes. This makes it an ideal choice for outdoor activities like hiking, kayaking, and camping where weather conditions can be unpredictable. https://routefinderhq.com/best-fish-finder-gps-combo/

Place your cursor in the first cell of the first column in the fnf table. Click on the "Numbering" button in the "Paragraph" section of the "Home" tab to apply numbering to the list. Adjust the numbering format if needed.
