Default create automatic numbering within a table

I need to convert multi-line tab-delineated example sentences into tables, so
that all equivalent items on each line are on top of each other. That I can
do. But each multi-line example already comes with an automatic number within
parentheses. I simply want that same *automatic* number to reside in the
top-leftmost cell of the table, with empty cells beneath it. How do I either
transfer or replace that automatic number in(to) my table?

Thanks in advance,
leandros

Default create automatic numbering within a table

If the numbers are created by automatic paragraph numbering, you will have
to convert the numbers to text before you can manipulate the lines into a
table. You'll need a macro for that

Sub NumbersToText()
ActiveDocument.ConvertNumbersToText
End Sub

Then the process is essentially that at
http://www.gmayor.com/convert_labels...mail_merge.htm . Jump in where the
illustrations match your text. If you make a mistake, backup with CTRL+Z or
close the document without saving it and start again.
