Default How do I automatically update paragraph numbers in text (3 levels.

I have a document where the first number heading is 3.2.5. What follows are
sections starting with 3.2.5.1 , then 3.2.5.1.1 through 3.2.5.1.10. The next
section starts with 3.2.5.2, then 3.2.5.2.1 through 3.2.5.2.10, etc. I want
to update all the 3.2.5s to 3.2.6s. I tried find and replace, but it did not
work.

See: How to create numbered headings or outline numbering in your Word
document
http://www.shaunakelly.com/word/numb...Numbering.html. (For
bullets see http://www.shaunakelly.com/word/bull...olbullets.html, the
subject is related.)

This is based on ...

Word's Numbering Explained
http://www.mvps.org/word/FAQs/Number...gExplained.htm

Additional information you may find useful or need is at:

Briefly, if your numbering is correctly based on styles the updating is
pretty seamless.
