How to get cascading heading numbering in Word

Postby siskamoens on Tue May 20, 2008 8:12 am

I would like to have 3 levels of numbered headers in my Word output, such as

1. Section 1
1.1. Chapter 1
1.2. Chapter 2
1.2.1. Subheading 1
1.2.2. Subheading 2

Now I get the first two levels working with {secnum}. and {secnum}.{chapnum}. in the autonumbering format of my first and second level heading style, and starting a new section on every first level toc item and a new chapter on every second level toc item. But I have no idea what to put in the autonumber format for the third level heading style.
I tried putting {secnum}.{chapnum}.{n+}. and then {secnum}.{chapnum}.{Cn+}. but both gave me a static 1 as third level number (1.2.1 and then 1.2.1 and then 1.2.1 and so forth)

Does anyone know how I can assign an autonumbering scheme to the third level heading style that will give me an incremental number that starts at 1 again at the beginning of each chapter?
