How to autonumber table’s columns or rows in word?

AutoNumber can also be expended to tables in Word. If you have inserted AutoNumber in to a table’s columns or rows, you don’t need to adjust numbering when you inserting or deleting row or column from the table. The AutoNumber will update automatically. This article will show you how to apply AutoNumber in a table’s columns or rows. For better understanding, I will show you the way to insert AutoNumber in the first left column for the table below.

    Autonumbering the rows in a table gives me (in Word 2013), for example, 100-109, but then goes 10010, 10011. Is there a way to fix this?
