Hi all,
I need help with creating automated equation numbers in Word 2007.  They are similar to caption numbers, in that they are numbering an item in a document, but the equation numbers will be placed to the right (instead of beneath) the item.  The equations are scattered throughout the document and not in a continuous list.  Also, the equation numbers are to be labeled using outline numbering and take on the number of the relevant heading. For example, under a Heading 1 title (Section 1. Green Water), the equations should be numbered this way: 1.1, 1.2, 1.3, etc., and then change for Section 2 to read 2.1, 2.2, 2.3).
Anyone have any tips on how to do this?  Word's numbering always throws me for a loop.
Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you.
