    Word 2K Outline Numbering (Word 2000)

    I'm having problems getting outline numbering to work properly in Word 2K.

    After creating a 3-level outline with no line numbers, I select all, go to Format / Bullets and Numbering / Outline Numbered and select the box that shows 1.1.

    But instead of getting 1.1 for heading 2 and 1.1.1 for heading 3, I get sequential integer line numbers for each heading no matter what the heading level, i.e., 1, 2, 3, ...n throughout the document.

    What am I doing wrong?

    Yes, thanks, Gary. It is very counter-intuitive that you have to do it through styles rather than being able to select the headings you want from outline view and applying them.

    I haven't used numbered outlines for about 5 years, but I sure don't remember the older versions of Word working this way.

    Anyway, thanks for your help.

    Jim
