remove automatic numbering but keep the numbers

Automatic numbering is a good servant but a bad master. It’s possible to turn it off but what happens if you have somebody else’s document with lots of automatic numbering that you want to turn off but keep the numbers generated by it? My Australian colleague Ned Alaru gave me such a document. The code to keep the numbers is just one line long:

Sub RemoveAutomaticNumbering()
ActiveDocument.Range.ListFormat.ConvertNumbersToText
End Sub
