If you are talking about filling a column with sequential values, and the values start in, say, B2: ="a"&TEXT(ROW()-1,"000000") Copy that down the column as needed. If it starts in a different row, adjust the subtraction so the first value is 1.

The only solution I could find was hacky and horrible, but got the job done (eventually). I converted the doc to a jpg, set the jpg as the background image of the Access report, then manually recreated all the elements and lined them up with the background image.

The number of false positives were acceptable (1, 2, and 2).

The best way to look inside a Word document from PowerShell would probably be to use COM automation. This tutorial looks good: Learn Powershell: Beginning with PowerShell and Word.

STOP! Have you been doing all of these things to the drive itself, or to a cloned copy of the drive? If the former, it may already be too late. If the latter, good.
