Hi all
I am writing a school book using OpenOffice 2.3
In the book, there are many quotes. I need OO to automatically number those quote whenever I add or remove quotes in the previous pages

The layout is much like:
Quote N 1
..............
Some comments
...............
.............
.........
Quote N 2
some other comments
......................
.............
...........
Quote N 3
.........................
some comments
..........................
.......................


Thanks

Thanks
But those lengthy quotes are in the book body, not just notes
I need them to be numbered form 1 until last number
and I need to make references to those quotes in other pages by indicating their number.

Use a Number Range field with an initial value of 1. Insert > Fields > Other > Variable tab. Because it defaults to Drawing it's easiest to use that but you can use Text if you want to.

Format --> Bullets and Numbering .. Options "Enter Quote N " in the Before Field.

@mgroenescheij
I did go to Format --> Bullets and Numbering .. Options
I didnot know how

@JohnV
Thanks
Your tip worked very well
Now, if in another page, I make reference to a quote saying: " for further informations, see quote X..."
All I have to do is to insert a cross-reference using the variable's name
Is that correct?

If you select Text or Drawing you will get at list of quotes to select from and you can then reference to Numbering.
