Do you mean NUM OFF ? (two words). I am not sure what you mean by OK, I do not believe the line numbers are removed. The next time the editor starts, it will recognize the valid line numbers.

Try using UNNUM instead of NUM OFF.

Be careful with UNNUM as it will erase columns 1-8 that it thinks are SEQ#s.

Just a standard function of ISPF VB files that it assumes numerics in 1-8 are SEQ#s. Don't think you can stop it.
