Heading 5 is using the outline numbering formatting.
Update the style to use the correct outline numbering format.

To update a style, one method is to use Format from the Menu Bar, select Styles.
Select your style (Heading 5) and modify.
You will need to modify Paragraph... formatting, numbering options.

thanks DoDahD.

Anyway to keep a record of what i did. Word 2003

1. Select paragraph with Heading 5
2. Right Click-> Bullets & numbering
3. click on the outline numbered tab -> choose the box which looks closest to what you are trying to achieve.
4. Click on customise button
5. Select "5" under level
6. under Number Style, select 1,2,3...
7. Previous level number, select 1 and you will see "1" with a grey background appears under number format
8. add a "." dot behind 1.
9 Repeat step 7 but select 2 this time and repeat step 8
10 Keep repeating step 7 and 8 till you get 1.1.1.1.1
11. Click OK

now you have a heading 5. with x.x.x.x.x
