I am formatting and editting approximately 40 word documents that all have to conform to a Legal Numbering format. This means that each paragraph requires a unique number and sub-paragraphs must be at a corresponding lower level of numbering.

The Challenge:

I have documents where the following is true:

1. Heading Level 1
1.1 Text
1.2. Heading Level 2
1.2.1 Text
1.2.2 Heading Level 3

So my table of contents reads

1. Heading Level 1
1.2 Heading level 2
1.2.2 Heading Level 3

I want

1. Heading Level 1
1.1 Heading level 2
1.1.1 Heading Level 3

Which would translate to (I am guessing here)

1. Heading Level 1
1.0.1 Text
1.1. Heading Level 2
1.1.0.1 Text
1.1.1 Heading Level 3

Does anyone know how I can force MS Word 2007 to do this?

Regards,
Lauren

Set up a Multilevel List with the specific numbering systems you require, then apply that style set to the documents.

You should go through each document and make sure the styles applied properly. Your system is somewhat complex, so you might need one style set for headers and another for your text paragraphs.
