    Post Heading numbers not working

    Hi,

    Reference the attached Word file, section 2 is not picking up the right heading numbers.

    It should be 2.1, 2.2, 2.3 ... ...

    Please help!

    Thanks.

    Hi BJ,

    In order for the second-level numbering to restart after each instance of first-level numbering, you need to associate the styles used for both levels, with a multilevel list - see attached revised document.

    Thumbs up

    Thanks very much Gary. For some reason I'm unable to replicate what you've done in the attachment.

    Please can you advise how to do this with Word 2010?

    TIA - BJ

    Hi BJ

    This was done in Word 2010. You need to learn about styles and numbering. Plenty info out there and on this list too.

    Not sure what you what for Heading 3 level (a) or a heading. I've created a List Style "Firm Headings" and set up
    Heading 1 Verdana 22
    Heading 2 Verdana
    Heading 3 (a)
    Body Text Verdana 11
    Body2
    Verdana 11

    Janine - thank you for that!

    I do know about these and have set them up successfully in the past.

    This time I know I'm missing something (maybe feeling a bit sleepy!) so am asking for your advice

    Its something small I have overlooked!

    TIA

    For how to set this up, see http://www.shaunakelly.com/word/numb...numbering.html. It isn't that hard but is not necessarily intuitive.

    Amen Charles! MS Word in the US Federal Government can be a nightmare. I have spent hours correcting documents because IT is too busy keeping their network up to even consider something like pushing a template. The other indepth explanations are at:

    I was trying to find a Microsoft Blog entry on how Word numbering got to where we are, but will have to let that go for now.

    I trust Shauna Kelley's directions more than anything from Microsoft. They seem to be bulletproof. The folks at Microsoft often don't seem to understand Word. (I don't think anyone understands Word, but think that Shauna Kelly and John McGhie understand the numbering better than most of Microsoft's customer support staff or blog writers.

    Thanks for the Microsystems link. I had an outdated link to that on my numbering page and have now updated it.

    I've added this blog to my page on Styles.
    For more on numbering see John McGhie's work: Word's Numbering Explained at http://word.mvps.org/FAQs/Numbering/...gExplained.htm. It is a lot more than any Microsoft source will tell you. Shauna Kelly's article is essentially a Cliff Note's version of McGhie's work.
    I have a lot of other references on my Numbering page if you feel like bouncing your head off walls.
