I have a table of about twenty cells, and within some cells there will be a number list (about five items). I'd like to use one paragraph style, and have each cell restart numbering from 1. I know how to automatically restart numbering with flowing text, but I can't figure out from cell to cell. I'd rather not go through Restart Numbering for each cell because not all cells are contiguous and the document will have a lot of these tables.

Thanks!
