Need to create multi level numbering scheme in Word 2003

In Word 2003, I need to customize a multi-level numbering scheme that matches the one on the attached file. So, for level 1, I need roman numerals Centered, for level 2, headings I will need them to number, 1.2, 1.2, etc (left aligned), and for level 3 it would be 1.1.1, 1.1.2, etc. And each of thest first numbers of the subheadings would have to reflect the number of the level one heading, so under my second level 1 heading (II) level two would be 2.1, 2.2 etc. So autonumber would have to be in effect when I pressed enter on a certain heading to keep the numbering consistent.

If you right-click the number..  You should be able to use a custom-numbering format..  It is called "Define New Number Format"

start off with the standard outline numbering style that uses


Then select the Heading 1 style, click Modify in the formatting pane > Format button > Numbering > Customize > select the I, II, III numbering style. Select "Follow number with" > "Nothing". Click OK until you're back in the document.

outline numbering level 1
Select a heading 2 paragraph and modify the style with Modify > Format > Numbering > Customize > Select the Legal Style Numbering tick box (see screenshot) and click OK.

outline numbering level 2
Repeat the last step for all heading levels you require. Format the styles to the desired font and indenting.

When you enter a Heading 1, apply the style, and after the Roman number hit Shift-Enter twice to get the text on a new line.
