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?

Alas, you can't do it reliably in Word with styles. The numbering function just won't support series of numbers that end and start over again. However, you can do it with "seq" fields, and you can create those fields as AutoText.

I see that Bonnie Granat has a good explanation of how those work, so I won't repeat it.
