I am using Numbered styles in word, in a Track Change - tracked

Customer Question

I am using Numbered styles in word, in a Track Change - tracked document for document control purposes. I am continually having trouble with the numbering system especially when I try to add a new heading in between existing headings. The subsequent headings change to the updated number but include the old number in front of the new number and no amount of pressing Accept Change gets rid of it. How do I fix this?
