Outline Numbering in Word

By wattsnew ·
My Heading 1 Style is formatted with Outline Numbering. My Heading 2 style is also formatted with Outline Numbering. Whenever I apply the Heading 1 style to the selected paragraphs, the numbering sequence looks okay (1, 2, 3,); however, when I apply the Heading 2 style on a paragraph that follows a Heading 1 number greater than 1, the numbering sequence does not seem to work (4, 1.1, 1.2) In this case I would like to see 4, 4.1, 4.2. I've tried all sorts of formatting specs I can think of, but I can't seem to get this one right. Can anyone help please? Thanks.

Right click on the Heading 2 style. Choose "Numbering and Bullets", Locate the level 1 and set the "start numbering from " to 4
