Merging to Word using numbering

Hello, I have a document that has 8 paragraphs numbered, which I am merging, unfortunately at the second page or next contact the numbering starts from 9, how do I change it so it always starts from 1 for the next entry?  It's very difficult having to change 89 pages manually.  Is there a switch I can use to stop this?  Thanks so much for any help you can give!!!

There isn't any way that I know of. The mail merge effectively creates one large document so Word controls like page numbering or paragraph numbering run continuous through the merged document.

Thanks Roy!!!  I have now put into a table, which makes it not come up as numbering so this has fixed the problem.  Thanks so much!!!
