How do I reset the numbering with Word 2007.  Each style shown below is attached to its respective level (Heading 1 with Level 1, Heading 2 with Level 2...).  For example, I want the following line below "3.      Heading 4" to read "1.      Heading 4" because the line is preceded with Heading 1.  Similarly, "4.      Heading 4" should read "1.      Heading 4" as well, because it's preceded by Heading 2.

Heading 1
Heading 2
Heading 3
1.      Heading 4
2.      Heading 4
Heading 1
3.      Heading 4
Heading 2
4.      Heading 4

jdana,

Try right clicking on the number you want and selecting, reset numbering.

Also, go to the right of 3. and click enter, this should make 4. below it. Then use the increase indent key (arrow pointing right and some lines, on the Ribbon -> Home -> Paragraph section) to move the 4. "to a lower level", which should become 1. of your sub level.

But I think you want to "restart the numbering" if I follow your question correctly.

Hope this helps,
