    When I create a list that has some numbers in it and then bullet that list, it deletes the first number on that line. Here's an example:

    The Original:

    Test 1

    20 30


    Test 1

    30 50


    What happens when I bullet the lines with numbers:



    Is there any way to keep it from deleting those numbers? I am assuming it thinks that the first number on that line is part of a numbered list, but its not and for the life of me I cannot figure out how to make it stop!!!!!

    Howdy. Go to Tools > AutoCorrect Options > AutoFormat As You Type.

    Uncheck the box next to "Automated bullet lists" and uncheck "Automated numbered lists".

    I've unchecked everything that is under AutoFormat, Autocorrect, etc. It still does it. This is in Word 2002 by the way...

    Have you tried selecting the bullet before typing the numbers?
