I have a table in a Word document and would like to add auto numbering to one of its columns. In Excel I would just set the first to 1 and the rest to =A1+1, but I can't figure out how to do this in Word. Is it possible?

Try to:

  1. Select a column you'd like to fill in with numbers.
  2. Go to Home ribbon.
  3. Just click Numbering.

Numbers should be placed in consecutive rows. Adjust numbering style, if necessary.
