    First off let me thank everyone who contributes to forums like this. It is so nice knowing that there are people out there willing to help when someone needs a hand...and on that note :o)

    I have created a spreadsheet that I am using as a work order. I have a cell (C2) that contains the work order number...lets say it is WO-GV-0000.

    Instead of taking these to a printer and paying a bunch to have them printed off, I'd like to print off 100 of them all at once and have the number increase by one each time...WO-GV-0001, WO-GV-0002 and so on.

    I'm going to assume that this will be some kind of a VB or macro that will allow me to do this (if it's even possible).

    Thank you in advance for any help you can provide.

    give this a try

    Sub NumberedWorkOrders()
        Dim i As Integer
        For i = 1 To 100    'start number to end number
            Cells(2, 3).Value = "WO-GV-" & Format(i, "0000")
            ActiveWindow.SelectedSheets.PrintOut Copies:=1, Collate:=True
        Next i
    End Sub

    I see you cross posted at these sites

    all forums have rules about that.
