If you’re producing any kind of numbered items in-house that are multiple-up on a sheet where you need to control all the variables to meet your production needs, the autonumbering feature through numbered lists is the way to go!

Though the seems simple, when the try and do the things using spreadsheets - frequent mistakes happen. It is not uncommon to see two different document with the same document number in the EPC industry. To ensure that the document numbering system is useful for the project - the document control center has to ensure that there is a uniqueness check built upon the document numbering method for the project.

So which numbering system to be used for the project is one of the key questions that is to be answered at the beginning of the project itself. The question in ususally answered in the kick-off meeting. Normally - as most of the parties are reluctant to change their internally processes for a specific project, a drawing or the document tends to have multiple document/drawings numbers - one from the owner, one from the contractor and one from the Vendor. 

In order to ensure you are not missing important data for your business, it is a good idea to number your business forms. Numbered forms help you identify gaps in paperwork that may cause an issue with billing, payroll and other financial aspects of your business. If you purchased basic stock business forms at an office supply store, they may not be numbered. Numbering the forms is a manual process that can be done as each form is needed, or you can number a stack of forms at one time to have them ready for immediate use.

In an early planning meeting, someone on a project we’re working on requested a 65 digit number for a document! This code wasn’t just numbers, it included letters and symbols as well. There’s no doubt that this system was super-organized, but is it practical? It’s worth remembering that the doc number has to be understood by everyone, including external suppliers and subcontractors. Plus the longer the number, the greater the risk of human error.


I have done this twice now, getting flustered. The ticket part the person keeps has the correct sequential number on it, but the side that we keep has the same number on it for the whole page. What part am I missing, at first I did not uncheck the box, but this time I did but have the same number on the stub side that we keep with the person's name, etc
