What you seek is not possible without some customization.  However, bear in mind that what is commonly referred to as a wire number is actually the number of an electrical node.  It has more to do with the electrical potential of the wires in the node (i.e. voltage) than it does the components on either end of the wires in the node.  That is why it is usual and customary for the "wire number" to appear the same on all of the wire markers for each end of each wire in the node.  It is a troubleshooting tool.  The From/To List will contain the node number (a.k.a. wire number) and the From and To component connection information.  I have my panel shop print a 2-line wire identification label. The first line is the node number and the second line is the component/pin assignment. Obviously, the second line of the label is different for each end of a wire.  I have basically merged the DIN/IEC standard for marking wires with their connection information (helpful when replacing a component) with the U.S. standard of marking the wire with a node number (for troubleshooting).


Hint: AutoCAD Electrical uses the term network to refer to a node.
