Default Header numbering that spans multiple lines

Hi all. I thought I was a reasonably competent user of Word after basically growing up using it. Then I discovered this forum, and I feel like a beginner again!

I'm currently writing my PhD thesis, and would like to format my headers as follows:

1.
Chapter name


1.1 - Header 1
Body

1.1.1 - Header 2
Body

etc.

So... have the chapter number followed by a line break, and then the chapter name, and then the headers follow the standard multilevel number formatting. How easy is this to do?

I'd also ideally want the chapter number and name to then appear on one line for the ToC.

So...

1. Chapter name ............................1
1.1 - Header 1 ...........................1

etc.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

EDIT - For what it's worth, I'm using Microsoft Word 2011 for Mac 14.2.4 on Mountain Lion 10.8.2.

Default Header numbering that spans multiple lines

Hi,

[Microsoft Word 2011 for Mac]

I'm currently writing my PhD thesis, and would
like to format my headers as follows:


1.
CHAPTER NAME
*1.1 - Header 1*
Body



So... have the chapter number followed by a line break,
and then the chapter name, and then the headers follow
the standard multilevel number formatting. How easy is
this to do?


create your list style and paragraph styles (as described he
http://www.shaunakelly.com/word/numb...20072010.html).
However, for level 1 you have to choose in the dialog box "Modify
Multilevel List" in the field "Follow number with" the entry "Nothing"
(instead of "Tab character").
And, when applying "Heading 1" to your paragraph, you have to insert
the manual break manually (Shift + Enter).

I'd also ideally want the chapter number and name
to then appear on one line for the ToC.


Add the \x switch to your TOC field, as described he
http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/wo...005186201.aspx

Hope, it works for Word for MAC...

Another approach is to use two separate styles; see
