I am trying to add page numbers in the footer of multiple microsoft

Customer Question

I am trying to add page numbers in the footer of multiple microsoft word (2011) files. I want them to be numbered chapter-page (e.g., 1-1, 1-2, etc. then the next file to be 2-1, 2-2, etc.) I go to the Header/footer. I select 'Insert Page Number' I click on format and click to check include chapter number. Then I get an error that says "There is no chapter number to include in the caption or page number. To apply chapter numbers use the Bullets and Numbering command on the Format menu and select a multilevel list style that is linked to the Heading styles." I go to the Format Bullets and Numbering but am unsuccessful in selecting multilevel list style. Can you help me figure this out?
