Default multi-level Table of figures

I'm creating a parts manual in Word 2010 and would like to know if it's possible to create a multi-level table of figures. I have a top-level assembly drawing which contains several part and sub-assembly drawings which I would like to be reflected in table of figures i.e.

Drawing 1: Top level assembly
A. sub-assembly or part
B. sub-assembly or part
C. sub-assembly or part

Drawing 2: Top level assembly
A. sub-assembly or part


B. Sub-assembly or part

Is this possible? If so how do I set this up? I'm pretty new to this Word 2010 functionality.

Thanks in advance.

The secret is in the styles, for one thing. Once you've cracked that (so that the "Drawing n." captions use one style and the "sub-assembly" captions use another) then you can check references such asShauna Kelly's site also includes a wealth of information about styles and auto-numbering.

You will have to set up your table of figures the way you would set up a custom table of contents with two paragraph styles, mapping one paragraph style to level 1 and the other to level 2. See the description of the Table of Contents Options dialog box in MVP Suzanne S. Barnhill's article at http://wordfaqs.mvps.org/TOCTips.htm#TOCOptions.
