    Word 2010 - Outline numbering

    I am having problems setting up my outline numbering. I want to set up headings for appendices. At the moment, all seems correct on Appendix A headings, i.e. A1, A1.1, A1.2, A2, A2.1 etc, but as soon as I use Appendix B headings, they come out as B1, B1.1, B1.2, B2, B1.3 and I can't seem to find out where to change it to follow the B2 with B2.1. It is set up to renumber after a Level 1 heading, but it isn't doing it. Do I need to do something else? Please help if you can, this is driving me mad!

    What instructions have you followed to get to the point you have reached?
    Can you post a sample document so we can see where you have gone wrong?

    I attach a sample of the headings I am getting and screenshots of how they appear to be set up. I know it's wrong, but I'm not sure what I have to do to correct it.

    Many thanks

    Your first heading level in appx A should be A (for the appx title), the second A1, and so forth. Are your appendixes in a different document from your main text? If so, then here's what you can do. You only need five headings Appx title and Appx hds 1 to 4.

    Put the cursor on the first appendix title in the document (in its own paragraph style).
    Click define new Multilevel List icon and then click the built-in list for 1 Heading, 1, 1.1 Heading 2, etc.
    Immediately click the Multilevel List icon again and then Define new multilevel list.
    Name your list. Then click Format > Numbering to get to the Modify (or Define) Multilevel List dialog.
    Link your appx title paragraph style to level 1, appx hd 1 paragraph style level 2, and so forth.
    On the left side of the dialog, click level 1 then change the number style from 1,2,3 to A,B,C.
    In the Enter formatting for number (still for level 1) box type "Appendix" and a space before the number field.
    OK out of the dialog.

    That should do it. Make sure to apply the paragraph styles consistently throughout the document.
