SEQ Identifier [Bookmark ] [Switches]

Sequentially numbers chapters, tables, figures, and other items in a document.

identifierThe name you assign to a series of items to number
The name must start with a letter and is limited to 40 characters (letters, numbers, and underscores)
For example, the name for a series of tables might be "tables."
bookmarkInclude a bookmark name to refer to an item elsewhere in the document
For example, to cross-reference an illustration, mark the SEQ field numbering for that illustration with the bookmark "Pic2," and then insert a cross-reference to it using { SEQ illust Pic2 }.
\cRepeats the closest preceding sequence number
This is useful for inserting chapter numbers in headers or footers.
\hHides the field result
Use it to refer to a SEQ field in a cross-references without printing the number
For example, you might want to refer to a numbered chapter but not print the chapter number
The \h switch doesn't hide the field result if a Format (\*) switch is also present.
\nInserts the next sequence number for the specified items
This is the default.
\r nResets the sequence number to the specified number n
For example, { SEQ figure \r 3 } starts figure numbering at 3.
\sResets the sequence number at the heading level following the "s"
For example, { SEQ figure \s 2 } starts numbering at the Heading 2 style.

* The easiest way to insert SEQ fields to number tables, figures, and other items in a document is to use the Caption command (Insert menu, Reference submenu).
* The LISTNUM field also produces automatic numbering and may be a better alternative if you are creating a complex numbered list.
* A SEQ field in a header, footer, annotation, or footnote doesn't affect the sequence numbering that results from SEQ fields in the document text.
* If you didn't use styles to format document headings, you can number chapter headings by inserting a SEQ field at the beginning of each chapter:
* If you add, delete, or move an item and its respective SEQ field, you can update remaining SEQ fields in the document to reflect the new sequence.
