Hi, everyone. I've been blessed with not having to use Word as an authoring
tool, so my skills are not as advanced as many of you. I'm using Word 2007.

I've downloaded a document template that I need to modify for use by the
whole company. The template has some number list 'magic' that I can't
replicate. The document does not appear to use any styles other than
headings and Normal. I would like to create the appropriate styles so I can
fix formatting from other authors before the docs are released.

The doc has a 3-column table.

*Step * *Action* *Individual*
1 Do this thing I. Matt Falt
1.1 step 1 of thing
1.2 step 2 of thing

2 Do thing 2 I. Matt Falt
2.1 step 1 of thing 2
2.2 step 2 of thing 2
2.3 step 3 of thing 2

It the numbering in the Action column that I need help with. It behaves
like the second level of a multilevel list, but where is the value of level
one being set? The content in the Step column is text using the Normal
style. How do I add 'thing 3' and get the numbered (3.x) steps to do that

Free free to contact me directly if this is an idiot lesson that the rest of
the list doesn't need. ;-)

Thank you in advance!


P.S. While I have you thinking about numbered lists, is it possible to
remove something from the Numbering Library?
