Default Using section breaks with formated (styles) pages

I am attempting to create a single word document using section breaks. I
want to combine previously formated documents into one document. I open the
first document then insert a section break at the end and insert a new
document by using copy and paste then insert a section break again at the end
of this page and so forth. I figured out how to keep the page numbers (page
x of y) and the rest of my header information together within it's section
but the documents that have styles assigned to them continue their
numbering(in the body of the document) from the previous section. Example -
i have a page that has a heading that says Part 1 - General; -Part 2 -
Products; - Part 3 - Execution. The next page (new section) say Part 5 -
General when it should say Part 1- General. I can't find where i can change
it start at 1 for each new section. I hope i was able to explain my problem
clearly. I am using mircosoft word 2002. Thank you for your time. Coleen

Outline/heading numbering can't be restarted in a new section the way page
numbering can. For that you need different techniques. See
