Combining Outline number with Bullets

Hi All

In MS Word,  just wondering if anyone knows of a way to prefix outline numbering with a symbol (e.g. a wingdings character).  

As far as I can tell I'd need to use a table with the symbol in the left cell and the numbered paragraph in the right cell.  This might work but I think it is clunky.

Appreciate thoughts / a way forward.

Thanks, S

I don't think so.  As far as I can tell that is just bullets without numbering (the numbers shown look like text).

Ok... that's cool!  

I had a quick look but it seems I would not be able to use mixed font sets (I really want to use symbols from Win/Web dings...  this approach looks like I'd need to use 1 style for the number and another for the symbol which I'm not sure is possible...
Thanks for this... time to close.  It is not really what I was looking for but I think it is the best that can be done within the context of the question.  I am arranging my document in tables...

Cheers.
Unfortunately, only symbols with a corresponding ASCII code can be used
