    I have a coworker who wants to use the chapter numbering feature to insert the chapter number into the page number. I figured that out, but here's where I'm running into a problem:

    Each Chapter has Appendices that follow it and include the Chapter number as part of the Appendix number.

    For example:

    Chapter 2: Blah Blah Blah

    These page numbers will be 2-1, 2-2, etc.

    Appendix 2A: Blah Blah Blah

    These page numbers SHOULD be 2A-1, 2A-2, etc., but I can't figure out how to include the Chapter number in the Appendix number...?

    How has the numbering of the appendices been constructed?

    This can be done but not without having you jump through enough hoops to make you wish you could just type the prefix manually. The payoff in doing it this way is the TOC page numbering will make sense.

    I have attached a sample file which demonstrates what I am about to describe.
    1. Define the heading numbering so that the Appendices are in the same outline number series as the headings eg the Heading 7 is used for Appendix Heading.
    2. Put section breaks in front of every Heading 1 and Heading 7
    3. Format the page numbers for each section to ensure that the page numbers restart at one for each section. While formatting the page numbers for each section, make sure you include the relevant Heading number level - if the section starts with a Heading 1, choose to include Heading 1 numbering; if the section starts with Heading 7 (ie an Appendix) include a Heading 7.
