    Can someone please tell me why, when I start a numbered list in Microsoft
    Office 2007. When I reach the number 100, 101, 102 etc. and then type the
    titles after each number, Microsoft Office automatically leaves a half inch
    gap between the number and words. I have tried everything to backspace over
    the gaps, no luck!!!


    I am running Windows XP Professional

    It is because you are not aligning the numbers. Try this:

    99. Create the numbered list.
    100. Select the list items you want to realign.
    101. You'll find the Numbering tool in the Paragraph group on the
    Home tab. Click the Numbering tool's drop-down list and choose
    Define New Number Format.
    102. In the resulting dialog box, choose Right from the Alignment
    drop-down list.
    103. Click OK.

    You could also reduce the "hanging" (this is under indents and
    spacing) of paragraph formatting by few centimeters. Let me know
    if you want any help on this.
