    I have a Word for Mac 2011 doc that will be a template for an invoice. As pictured, I have a field that I would like to serve as the Sales Order field. I'd like the first number to be 000001. What I'd like to have happen is that each time the template is opened, the value in the Sales order field increments by 1, so the next opening would be 000002, then 000003, etc.

    I know I need either some VBA code or a Macro, but I'm really unclear how to do this. Also, how do I get the code to apply specifically to the cell where the sales order number is? Unlike Excel, there's no position value to the cell, like A1. Is there a way to apply VBA code or a Macro by selecting the cell somehow?

    All help appreciated!
