    Auto # in Table Content (2000)

    Auto numbering with headings to make a Table of Contents - when I
    format the headings and insert a number, I get 1, 2 & 3 etc OK but the
    sub-para numbering reverts to the continuing sub-para numbering from the
    original sub-paras - ie last number might be 1.7, then I'll have a
    heading for 2 and the next sub-para will be 1.8 not 2.1 ?

    Hi Shez,

    You need to make sure that the sub-para's style formatting is set 'Restart numbering after 1st higher level'. You can check this via Format (or Format|Style|Modify|Format)|Bullets and Numbering|Outline Numbered|Customise. You may the need to choose 'More' to see this option.

    Cheers

    The numbering system for the headings is based on a "List Gallery" entry. These interact with headings in a very confusing way.

    Try this.
    <UL><LI>Make sure the Insertion Point is in a Heading 1.
    <LI>Format > Bullets and Numbering > Outline Numbered
    <LI>Select a style of numbering that looks reasonable
    <LI>Click the "Reset" button at the bottom left of the screen
    <LI>Click Customize
    <LI>Click the More button
    <LI>Step down through all 9 numbering levels, make sure that each one is associated with the correct heading level[/list]

    Or, if you want to try a completely different approach, you might use the LISTNUM or SEQ fields which make the numbering entirely independent of the numbering scheme, and offer far more flexibility.
