Question OpenOffice numbering Q

Dunno if this is the right place to post this question, but I'd like to know whether it's possible to make an automatic numbered list in OOo without typing after each of the numbers. To illustrate, I need to print out a list containing numbers from 1. to 3763., with no additional text, e.g.:


The option of automated numbering is switched on, but it only works when you type stuff after each of the numbers. Once you stop typing and press Enter, the automation stops right there.
I wouldn't like to spend the whole day typing the numbers manually. If I can remember well, Micro$oft Office has this function, you only need to press and hold Enter to get a list from 1 to 3763 within a few minutes. Can you do that in OOo 1.1.4?

I did this in OOo2 (You really need to upgrade, by the way ) It should work in the older version.

Create the list of numbers in the Spreadsheet by copying the formula.

Edit, Copy the numbers.
Switch to the Text document.
Edit, Paste Special, as unformatted text.

Here's how I've done it:

Highlight 50 or so pages first (mm, I know it sounds really silly, but I haven't figured out a simpler way), and press the Numbering ON button.

The Question: Really, isn't there a simpler way to do that?
