Yet another numbering question...



Hi, I've read the Word help, plus many of the suggestions in this forum, but
I'm still not sure what I'm doing, so I hope someone can help with my
document numbering.

I have a document. Each chapter is a new section. Each chapter has
procedures, which I would like to have numbered as in the following pattern:

Chapter 1
1.1 <procedure>
1.2 <procedure>
Chapter 2
2.1 <procedure>
2.2 <procedure>

I can achieve the first number by associating it with the chapter number.

However, I can't figure out how to generate the second number. I tried using
AUTONUM, but then I couldn't restart from 1 with each new section. I tried
using SEQ, but it needed a bookmark.

I also tried at one point to use outline numbering to get the effect I
wanted, but since the procedures heading = Heading 3 (required), I could not
force it to use the "level 2" look. IOW, instead of 1.1 <procedure>, which is
what I want, I kept getting 1.1.1. <procedure> and couldn't seem to change it.

So now I'm all confused. If someone could help me figure out how to generate
the second digit of my procedure number, I'd appreciate it. And if you could
tell me how to turn the whole thing into "Heading 3," so that whenever I used
Heading 3, the numbering would be right there, I'd be eternally grateful!
Thanks very much.

What you need is a simple outline-numbered list. Level 1 has Chapter #
numbering, and Level 2 has 1, 2, 3 numbering, with Level 1 included. See
