I'm sure this an easy one for the experts. The cell numbering in the attached table goes from 1,2,3,4,7,8.....

The CellNumbered Format in Paragraph Designer (see attached) is the same when I select any of the cells with cells with cell numbering.

 

What am I doing wrong? Thanks.

Are there other numbered cells in the table, maybe with the missing numbers in them? If you have your cell numbering set for horizontal, not vertical, that might happen.  Put your cursor in the table, open the Table Designer on the Basic tab, and check the drop-down for Numbering. You probably want it Column First, not Row First. Note that if you are using tags with the same numbering series in multiple rows and columns, you can get odd results like this.

When I changed Numbering to Column First, the numbering updated correctly.

Thanks so much!

You have to be pretty careful with numbering in tables. It can get odd quickly, especially if you have cells with numbered lists in them.

Somewhere in the content between the cell with 4 and 7 are paragraphs that have an autonumber that is incrementing the numbers. To troubleshoot these, I will typically open the Paragraph Designer to the numbering tab, and arrow through the paragraphs.
