    paragraph numbering (Word 2000)

    I have a document with headings using Style "heading 1 " Each heading is followed by multible paragraphs using "normal" Style.
    I want the paragraphs to be numbered sequentially starting with the heading number. Such as.
    1. Heading One
    1.1 paragraph one
    1.2 paragraph two
    2. Heading Two
    2.1 Paragraph two point one
    2.2 Paragraph two point two.
    I tried to use outline numbering but it gives me strange results.
    How do I achieve this.

    Outline numbering should do what you want. Use the Heading 1 style for the paragraphs numbered 1. and 2., and the Heading 2 style for the paragraphs numbered 1.1, 1.2, 2.1 and 2.2. What were the problems you experienced?

    The problem is it changes the paragrah to heading 2 style. I want it to be normal style.
    But based on what you said I guess I simply have to redefine the font and other features of heading 2 style.
    Or can I redifine Heading 2 as based on normal style?

    I forgot to say, this document is already written. I am trying to clean up the formatting. It was pieced together from various other documents.

    One way would be to use Heading 2 for the paragraphs, and to modify the font etc. of the Heading 2 style.

    Another way would be use Normal for the paragraphs, and to modify the outline numbering to link the Normal style to level 2. Click Modify... in the Bullets and Numbering dialog, then More to be able to link a level to a style. Make sure that you set all levels you want to modify in one go.
