    Outline numbering: 1, 1.01, 1.01.01 (Word 2000)

    I know how to do outline numbering in Word to yield results of 1, 1.1, 1.1.1, etc. However, if I want to include a leading zero, such as 1, 1.01, 1.01.01, etc., how do I do that?

    Thanks!!!

    I think that you can achieve this using outline numbering with a number style of 01.,02 - see attachment.

    If you need help creating this, and attaching it to your headings, then please ask for further advice.

    Re: Outline numbering: 1, 1.01, 1.01.01 (Word 2000)

    I think that Outline Numbering (mainly for use in creating a Table of Contents) has caused me THE most frustration in all versions of Word. The only way I've ever got it to work reliably is to take a known working document and empty all the text out of it, and format the headings as Heading1/2/3 etc as appropriate. And, yes, I've read the Word MVP site... I probably just have a high density, though.

    I think Microsoft ought to invest Lots of Money in Intuitivity Research...

    That's exactly what I was looking for and didn't see! Thank you both for your responses!

    JohnGray,

    I feel sort of inept with Word (I'm fond of WordPerfect), but I haven't had any problems with getting the Outline Numbering to work in conjunction with custom styles. I use the Table of Contents feature and cross-references as well. Would you like to elaborate on your problems with Outline Numbering?

    I knew if I went out on a limb & said it couldn't be done with automatic numbering that either you or Hans would prove me wrong. <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>

    <P ID="edit" class=small>(Edited by Phil Rabichow on 05-Jan-04 17:44. )</P>Hi Linda:
    I don't think there is a way to do that with automatic numbering. (Edited: Wrong. See Stuart's <post#=327334 below>post 327334 below</post#>) I think that you would need to use seq fields (perhaps several) that you would combine in an autotext entry. Actually, Howard Kaikow had a downloadable document n his website called "Numbering clauses in an annex" that describes a method for doing so. His web site is at http://www.standards.com/ & the document is called annex01a.doc.
    Hope this helps,
