Default Multilevel List

Good morning…I have been tasked to create a document with a crazy multilevel list and can’t figure it out for the life of me. Level one has to be 1000, 2000, 3000…etc. Level two is 1100, 1200 for the first section then for the second and following sections should be 2100, 2200…etc. So the first number in level two should be the same as the first number in level one but then increase by one hundred each time. Level three is easy (a). Now the fun level four should be 1110, 1120, 1130…etc. for the first number is the same as level one, the second number is the same as level two and then it should increase by 10 each time. And yes only the government could come up with something this crazy. Thank you in advance for your assistance.

1000
1100
(a)
(b)
1110
(a)
(b)


1120
(a)
1200

2000

I don't think it should be that difficult. However, it is important that in doing this you not use the buttons on the ribbon, but rather follow the steps shown at How to create numbered headings or outline numbering in Word 2007 and Word 2010.

Note that you will have very confusing numbering if any of your numbered levels have more than nine items. Actually, you will have confusing numbering even without that confusion.

To clarify, I have added labels to your levels. Do I have it right?

1000 - level 1
1100 - level 2
(a) - level 3
(b) - level 3
1110 -level 4
(a) - level 5
(b) - level 5
1120 - level 4
(a) - level 5
1200 - level 2

2000 - level 1

Attached is a docx file with the numbering shown above. Note that you can have multiple instances of the same level four numbers.
