Default How to number an existing outline

In Windows Word 2007, in "out line view," I constructed an outline. I'm
unable to add a typical out line number scheme, such as

I
A
B
II
A
B
C

Thanks much

Have you tried applying the I, A, 1 scheme from the multilevel list dialog?
By default, this is linked to the built-in heading styles.

Thanks for pointing me in the right direction, but I'm still wandering around. Could you give me the sequence of key strokes


Thanks much

On the Home tab, click on the arrow next to the Multilevel List button in
the Paragraph group, and then click on the pane that shows the numbering you
want. Once you have applied it, you can go back and use Define New
Multilevel List to refine the numbering at any level or to link the levels
to different styles.

Thanks much for the additional instructions. However, I remember how easy it was to construct an outline in an earlier version of Windows Word, most likely

the 2003 version. Is it possible to down load the 2003 version, in which
case I will have both versions on my HP Pavilion desk top ( 64 bit )

Thanks again

Microsoft doesn't sell older versions of Word (assuming that's what you are
asking).

However, note that multilevel (outline) numbering isn't that different in
Word 2007, although the user interface (obviously) has changed a lot.

To create an outline of headings you can choose one of the predefined
heading formats listed under Home tab | Multilevel List (corresponds to
choosing a predefined heading format in Format | Bullets and Numbering of
previous versions).

To modify an existing multilevel list, first place the insertion point in
the first level 1 item (which means the first Heading 1 paragraph of the
document if you are dealing with heading numbering). Then click Home tab |
Multilevel List | Define New Multilevel List; you are presented with a
dialog box where you can define all aspects of numbering for all numbering
levels.

I went to viewoutline and constructed an outline of five level 1 entries.

Each of these entries had a number of subordinate entries. I then went to
the multi-level list on the home tab. There I was able to assign letters A to
E for the level ones. But I had to do it one at a time. I was unable to
assign a numerical designations for my level two's as I had intended.

Thanks for the help

Somehow I think you're not getting it. You set up the outline numbering
linked to specific styles; then you apply those styles to the paragraphs you
want to have the numbering.
