Default Word 2013 create simple format list for bylaws

I've been googling all day and i must be making it more complicated than it is. I have attached 2 jpgs to show what i'd like to have. I think it's just a simple outline but i've been trying to create it using multilevel list and headings when maybe i should just use a simple numbered list and type in the rest. I cannot get it to automatically advance to next number upon return, as in 1.01 [return] 1.02 [return], etc.



Bylaws 1 - shows the constitution which has just Articles and need the sequential number sections.

Bylaws 2 - shows the bylaws that i'd like to have the Articles, each one with Sections, and then the sequential automatic advancing number paragraphs. Any suggestions on a better look for the sections and numbering would be welcome.

I'm hoping the pictures show what i'm trying to do. Thanks for any help.

Forget about googling any further. Here are two separate links that fully explaines numbering within Word...2 of the best resources around. Now, I see that you are using the 2013 version while the links that I am providing are for earlier version BUT...they probably are still applicable and the information is excellent. Hope they help you...

Nothing out-of-the-box is going to do what you want.

Here is the ribbon version of Shauna Kelly's article which implements John McGhie's observations.
How to create numbered headings or outline numbering in Ribbon Versions of Word by Shauna Kelly
Follow her instructions completely. Do not skip steps.

Those two articles are the best information I know of for implementing numbering in Word.

You will find links to both of them in my chapter on Numbering in Microsoft Word.
That chapter also goes into the SEQ field.

Thanks guys! I did come across a couple of those links in my research but both of you gave new ones that look very useful. I'll bookmark and study them and i'm sure a solution is nearby.
I appreciate you taking the time to reply with good answers and info.
