How do I insert numbers after text?

I would like to type in my text in a document and then insert a number, but I 
want the number to change automatically for the next text.  For example, I 
want to say, "Requested Charge No. 1", but I want to insert the number 1, so 
when I enter my next charge I can insert the number 2.

You can use SEQ fields. For example, { SEQ myseq } would produce a list of 
Arabic numbers. To insert the field, you can press Ctrl+F9; Word adds field 
delimiters, { }, and then type the code as shown. To create additional fields, 
you can use copy and paste.

Note that SEQ fields don't update automatically. To trigger an update, you can 
switch to Print Preview and then back to your favorite view.

Insert a SEQ field in each place where you want a number.

For the first one, use the Field dialog (in Word 2003 or earlier, Insert > 
Field > Seq or in Word 2007, Insert > Quick Parts > Field > Seq). In the 
"Field codes" box in the upper right of the dialog, type in a name for your 
sequence -- this can be "charge" or just a single letter, but nothing with 
spaces or punctuation. (You need this because there can be multiple 
different series of SEQ fields, and the name distinguishes one series from 
another.)

For the other numbers after the first one, you can just copy an existing 
field and paste it into the new location, or make it an AutoText or 
AutoCorrect entry.

When you paste in a copy of the field, press F9 to update it to its new 
value, or right-click it and choose Update Field. Or you can press Ctrl+A to 
select everything and press F9, or just go to Print Preview and back.

How can I extend maximum number of records when opening sylk file?
When opening a .slk file in Excel 2002 you can only see the first 32,767 records. I have a file that is larger than this , and therefore I cannot see all of the data. I know that you can extend the maximum number of records when opening a text file - I just need to know how to do it. Can anybody help me please? Opening a text file and a SYLK file are two different operations "under the hood". If 32,767 is the limit, there's probably not much you can do about it. Do you have control over the workbook from which the SLK file was produced? If so, can you split it into two ...

Divide number and add remainder in another cell
Can someone help me? I made a work distribution spreadsheet and I can not get it to divide evenly. What I am trying to do is divide the total number of claims by the number of employees and distribute the result to each employee. There are conditions also.
