    I'm running Word 2007 (Srudent & Home Edition) on my Windows 7 RC box, trying to create a multilevel list that auto-generates text for me, using styles as the control. (Specifically, I'm creating a multilevel list for outlining books of the New Testament.)

    Thus far I've been able to carry through the list such that chapter numbers carry down into the lower List Levels, but I can't figure out how to have the text carry through. Here's a summary of the text, with styles in curly brackets:
    Here's an example of what that looks like, with bold text auto-generated by the multilevel list:
    As you can see, I have the Book reference in Level 2 fixed on "Acts [Level1 #]:" which is all fine and dandy until I reach the next book (Romans). I found that the {STYLEREF Book} field did exactly what I wanted (reference the most recent text using the "Book" style), but I can't figure out a way to insert that field into the automatic Multilevel List formatting.

    Any suggestions? Using a multilevel list isn't required, but it's the easiest method I've found for switching quickly between styles since I can use Tab instead of manually selecting the style for every paragraph. That, and it's VERY easy to align a TOC with a Multilevel list.
