Number Documents Sequentially

Many businesses use numbers to track forms such as invoices and purchase orders. Those numbers usually must go in order and can’t repeat. This hack shows you how to use Word to keep track of the numbering for you.

If you need to generate invoices for a business, you might save time using a premade invoice template, such as the ones available from the Microsoft web site. One such template is pictured in Figure 8-14.

You can download an assortment of premade templates from Microsoft.com
