Default List & headings & numbering problems

I am preparing a set of financial statements (lucky me).

I have created a word document with the notes to the financial statements as headings in a list. Each heading has a number and a title. e.g. 13. Goodwill.

The list seems to be working very well, except for one problem: when a note runs over more than 1 page, we repeat the number and title e.g. 13. Goodwill (continued).



The problem I have is that the automatic numbering is assigning a new number to the continuation and this is messing up the entire document.

How do I sort this out so it doesn't happen and each continuation is assigned the number of its 'parent' note?

One way is to use a section break between each "chapter" and specify a "Different first page" header and footer. You can then add a STYLEREF field pointing to the heading style you are using; place the STYLEREF and the word "(continued)" in the main header, leaving the first page header blank.

Of course, the approach discussed above will be difficult to use if you need a continuation notice for each heading level. It would work fairly well if you can manage with a continuation only for level 1 (Heading 1).
