Instantly create a numbered list without taking your hands off the keyboard (Word 2000/2002/2003/2007)

"You can easily create a numbered list in Word by selecting your list text and clicking the Numbering button on the formatting toolbar. But there's an even quicker way. Simply type the number 1, press [Tab], and then type your first numbered line's text. Then, press [Enter] and Word automatically enters the number 2 and moves your insertion point to align with the first entry. As long as you continue with your list, Word continues to insert consecutive numbers. To end the list, just press [Enter] twice.

If this doesn't work, ensure that you have the option enabled. Select Tools | AutoCorrect Options, and choose the AutoFormat As You Type tab. Select the Automatic Numbered Lists check box under Apply As You Type.(In 2007, click the Microsoft Office Button, then click on Word Options. Click Proofing, then click AutoCorrect Options to open the AutoCorrect dialog box.)"
