AUTONUM [switches]

Numbers paragraphs of text automatically.

\sDefines the separator character (separator characters: Characters you choose to indicate where you want text to separate when you convert a table to text, or where you want new rows or columns to begin when you convert text to a table.), which you place directly after the switch (switch: When working with fields, a special instruction that causes a specific action to occur
Generally, a switch is added to a field to modify a result.)

* In paragraphs that are formatted with the built-in heading styles (heading style: Formatting applied to a heading. Microsoft Word has nine different built-in styles: Heading 1 through Heading 9.), Word restarts the numbering at 1 in each successive heading level. If headings that contain AUTONUM fields are followed by body text paragraphs that also contain AUTONUM fields, Word restarts the numbering of the body text at 1 after each heading. If the headings don't contain AUTONUM fields, body text paragraphs that contain AUTONUM fields are numbered in a continuous, sequential series throughout the document.
* You cannot manually update an AUTONUM field.
* The result of an AUTONUM field isn't displayed if the field is nested within an IF field.
* This field is provided for compatibility with previous versions of Word. You should use the LISTNUM field.
