    Hi !
    I want to copy a numbered list in Word and paste to a text file.
    The numbers show up. How do I not copy the numbers preceding the
    items ?

    Thanks very much in advanced.

    By temporarily disabling the numbers and bullets in word before
    you copy and paste the text. Then you can simply close the word
    document (without saving it) so that no changes in the word file
    are saved.

    That one time call girl may suggest that you should use Tipex on
    the screen to remove the numbers!!! You have been warned.

    Try holding down the Alt key while making the selection to avoid them.

    Great ! That works. But I have to be very careful cause the list is
    very long and I may loose some characters. But it works. Thanks very
    much.
