I am creating some templates in Word. I have used Frame in the past to do
this formatting with styles, and now I am stuck with Word, so here's what I
am trying to do....

I have created a style called Step1, which I would like to have a 1. every
time I use it. Not a problem, as I customized the number to be 1. However,
I also have a style called Step, which follows Step1. I want this Step
style to automatically start at 2 and continue numbering through until the
last step, and so, I have set it to start at 2. This is not a problem for
the first instance of the Step style. However, for all other instances,
rather than restarting at 2, the numbers pick up with the next number to
follow from the preceding Step style.
Here's an example of what happens:

1. This is the first step. (style is Step1)
2. This is the second step. (style is Step)
3. This is the third step. (style is Step)

Body Text

1. This is the first step of the next procedure. (style is Step1)
4. Thiis is the second step of the next procedure. (style is Step)
5. This is the third step of the next procedure. (style is Step)

The only way I have found to fix this is to go to the second step in the
second procedure. Then go into Format, Bullets and Numbering, and Customize
to restart the numbering at 2. But, this is not within the style
formatting. Is there a way within the style to make Word realize that this
is a new procedure and that the line with the Step style should be starting
with 2 again?

I receive the digest, so if you could email me directly, I would appreciate
it. TIA!
