You can create automatic list numbering next to cells that contain data with the following formula ("=IF(B1<>"",COUNTA($b$b1:b1)&".","")".
Using the “Extended Formats and Formulas” options Excel will now automatically format a new item added to a list. There must be three of the preceding five rows with the same format. This feature also copies down a formula if the preceding rows contain the same formula.
