I have a document wherein the table numbers are out of sequence and I cant change them nor edit them. These are numbers that are automatically assigned when you put in a new table. However, I copied pasted a table from another document and it may be carrying over the properties from the original document. What do I do?

First thing to check is whether the tables are all using the same tag name, typically, TableTitle, then whether the Autonumber properties for that are all using the same Series Label, typically "T:".

If correct, then we get into issues of where the tables are anchored - within Anchored Frames, perhaps on disconnected pages, possibly even in a main flow that is not Flow A.

I would start by removing the overrides on the TableTitle tag. When you copy/paste into a Fm doc, you will typically get overrides, which allow for inconsistency, and that is what you are describing. After the overrides have been removed, then you can build the numbering format that you need, and Update All.

If you need a hand, come back and let us know.

As Bob pointed out, the paragraph is picking up the value of a previous paragraph. Either there's a series indicator, or it's the "unlabeled series" (it's without a series indicator, which is in itself a series)

There  will be another paragraph style (the one that displays with the x-1 value in your fm file) that's already using the unlabeled series, or using the series that your table title format is using.

Change your table title paragraph numbering properties, either by:

  • adding a series indicator (use an uncommon character to avoid conflicting with other series)
  • change the series indicator to something else, something not used in other tags.

Try Z: or Y: or $: for starters.

Unexpected jumps in autonumbers can easily be due to some unrelated paragraphs using the same same Series label (or just using Autonumber if no label is in use). In the case of label T: finding the rogues might even require saving as MIF and searching for:
<PgfNumFormat `T:

The disturbance could come in with a Text Inset, which means you might not be able to fix it within the affected document.
