    Outline Numbering (Word 2007)

    Hi

    I would really appreciate some help with a current problem.

    I am working on a long document, which is dividing into a number of chapters and each chapter number (1,2,3, etc) has been defined with a style named 'chapter number'.

    Within each chapter, I would like to use headings with outline numbering, where the first number is pulled from the last 'chapter number'. For example - Chapter 2 will have headings 2.1, 2.2, and Chapter 3 will have headings 3.1, 3.2, etc.

    I feel sure this must be achievable, but I just can't figure it out!

    Many thanks

    Welcome to Woody's Lounge!

    You can use the Heading 1 style for chapter headings, and Heading 2 style for subheadings (and if you need it, Heading 3 for sub-subheadings etc.)
    Click in a chapter heading.
    In the Home tab, in the Paragraph group, click MultiLevel List.
    Select the option indicated in the screenshot below.
    All the Heading style paragraphs will be numbered the way you want automatically.

    Thanks for pointing me in the right direction Hans

    Unfortunately, the multilevel list option results in a real mess for me - for example, my level 2 headings bear no relation to level 1. I think I need to read up about this option (I hadn't spotted it before) and find out where I've set something wrongly, but thanks for pointer!

    You may be able to reorganize the document in outline view. The Outlining tab contains tools that are useful for this; see Microsoft Word 2007: Using the Outline View.
