I use a pair of counters that I call 1 and 2, where 1 resets the list and 2
increases until a new number 1 occurs. They are not styles, they are
sequence fields:

Counter 1 is {SEQ lettered \* Arabic \r 1}
Counter 2 is {SEQ lettered \* Arabic}

They work well. I've added them to my templates as auto-text entries and
made them accessible via right-click.

I find that if used too many times in a large document (100+ pages) the
numbering falls apart. The fix is to create an additional numbering scheme
by changing the sequence name for the new instance. For example, change the
sequence name from 'lettered' to 'Alettered'. The resulting field is {SEQ
Alettered \* Arabic \r 1}. Do this for both counters.

OK, I know there are known autonumbering problems in Word 97, but . . .

For those who use both Word and FrameMaker, I'm trying to create a pair of
styles in Word 97 that function like the numbering of FrameMaker paragraph

I've created an N1 style which always displays "Step 1" as an autonumber.
My N+ style displays "Step 2" and higher, incremental by one.

Now, how do I make the N+ style revert to Step 2 (restart) after each
instance of an N1 paragraph?
