    Impossible outline numbering scheme? (Word 2000)

    My firm frequently uses the following multi-level numbering scheme:

    Level 1: I. (Upper-case Roman)
    Level 2: 1.1
    Level 3: 1.1(a)
    Level 4: 1.1(a)(i)

    I have not been able to create the entire group as automatic numbers using Word's outline numbering. I can do Levels 1 and 2 but not Levels 3 and 4. I find that when I checkmark the "Legal style numbering" option in the Customize Outline Numbered List dialog box, Word will not let you use letters in constructing the outline numbers.

    Is there a solution to this? Thanks.

    This question has been asked in a very similar way previously and I think you could start by reading this thread.

    The answer is a workaround but it can do what you require.

    Thanks, Andrew. I looked at the other thread. It's interesting how several respondents misunderstood the actual levels of numbering Katie-Lynn was asking about. I've had the same problem here at the office. I emailed one of our systems people about this and she said, Oh, sure, I know how to do that. But when she showed me her solution, she had the first level as Arabic instead of Roman numbering.

    Wow, you're quite a regular here! You've helped me before. Don't know if I mentioned it at that time, but I was in Melbourne in 1974. I was a trumpet player touring with a brass quintet and we gave concerts in several cities in Australia. Of all the halls we played in on that trip, Melbourne was my favorite. It was an old auditorium that had a lot of wood in it and had some of the greatest acoustics I've ever heard. As I recall, there was at least one balcony, maybe two. I remember having to look mostly up to see the audience. The audiences in Australia were fantastic. Very warm reception to us guys from the States.

    Thanks for helping me again.
