Numbering down automatically (decrement) in a table

For a 'real'sultion with ExtendScript (since FM-10) see #series markers are an "extension to automatic numbering".

FrameMaker does not provide a means for decrementing the numbers with automatic numbering in a paragraph format. However there is a trick if you need decrementing numbers in a table:

Table with decrementing numbering

Reverse numbering in ordinary paragraphs can thus only be achieved by misusing a table with only one row.

This trick was communicated by Wim Hooghwinkel in the framers list on january 25, 2011.

See the PDF with the more detailed procedure and the results of each step.
