Word 2007. I wish to have my equations numbered as;

Equation (1)

Equation (2)

Equation (3)

and so forth but in Word 2007 I cannot get parentheses to appear and it is

making my equation numbering sequence appear as part of my overall outline

numbering. I want the equations in my dissertation document to appear in

simple numerical order without reference to the section number (e.g., 2.2.3).

Also I just want Eqn. x to appear in the cross-reference not Equation.

There was a Word 2007 posting on Microsoft about setting up tables for

equations to get the desired format but this seems overly involved and I

prefer to write and edit my equations with MS Equation 3.0.
