Default Numbering in Heading Styles

(Using Word 2000)
I just noticed a problem with the numbering of Heading styles. Please have a look at the following screen dump below.


I've been using Word 2000 since it came out and never had this problem. I am using the Heading styles with Outline numbering. Please notice that although Heading 1 numbers correctly, Heading 2 always begins with a "1". I've gone through my Heading styles and cannot find anything with Heading 1 and Heading 2 that indicates a problem:

Thank you. I followed the instructions in SK's procedure and after a couple of hours, managed to get those instructions right.

Create a template with the numbering the way you want it. Base new documents on that template.
