Asending Numbering (Alpha) starting with AAAA

Nov 19, 2012 10:52 AM

Frame 8 & Windows Vista, both fully patched. Is it possible to have a paragraph numbering format that initially has 4 displayed characters and increment by 1 character. For example, AAAA increments to AAAB, AAAC ... AABA, AABB ... ABAA, etc.

    Set numbering properties (Numbering > Building Blocks) for the first instance to:

    <A=18279>

     

    Set numbering properties for all others to:

    <A+>

    > ... how does one come up with 18279 equaling AAAA?

     

    Well, I originally used trial and error, since I wasn't even sure that FM's A counter would do multiple "digits".

     

    But the mathematical way is that "AAAA" is "1111" in Base26 (hexavigesimal / sexavigesimal). Any number of web calculators will convert that to Base10 (18279) for you.
