    Complex Numbering Style in Word 2010

    Hi, hopefully someone will be able to assist.

    I have a numbering style:

    1) Text
    2) Text
    a) More Text
    b) More Text
    i) Even more text

    Sometimes I need to be able to do

    1) a) Text
    b) Text
    c) i) Even more text
    ii) Even more text

    Is it possible to set up such a numbering style?

    Sorry, the alignment does not show correctly. I attach a word document showing what I mean,

    Look at Shauna Kelley's instructions on numbering. Follow all of the steps. You need on that level to include the numbering from the previous level.

    Much more on different ways of numbering in Word.

    Charles is right, RaymondB,

    First thing to do when setting up complex numbering is to understand numbering. Shauna did an excellent job of it.

    However, your example seems to show that you only sometimes need the next level numbering to follow a heading on the same line. In that case, you can use a listnum field. See the example doc I've attached and take a look at the fields by toggling Alt-F9.
