Can't restart numbering in multi-level list

In Word 2007, I'm using the default multi-level list headings, and they do this:

I.
A.
B.
II
C. (should be A)

I tried adjusting this at

Home>Multilevel List>Define New MultiLevel List > Restart after > Level 1

but no joy.

Any suggestions on this would be appreciated.

Thanks!

Hello,

can you post a sample file with the numbering applied? I'd like to see how you've set that up.

Thanks for response.  Test file attached, created by stripping text from actual document in question.

It might be that your list gallery has become modified. Try re-applying the list. If that doesn't help, try renaming your Normal template so that Word creates a new default one, and then try re-applying the list.

Thanks for input.  How can I delete the normal template in Word 2007?

That depends on your operating system.

Win XP:
C:\Documents and Settings\<your user name>\Application Data\Microsoft\Templates

Vista and Windows 7
C:\Users\[User Name]\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Templates

You can also search in Windows Explorer for *.dot*

Once you see the templates folder, delete the Normal.dot and the Normal.dotm

cheers, teylyn
