Smart Forms "Number Concatenation" attribute for outlines -- where is it?


I am an ABAP developer in the process of self-teaching myself Smart Forms (I'm using SAP Press' SAP Smart Forms for this). So far, it's going well. Obviously, there's small differences here and there between the book and the latest version of R/3 (SAP ECC 6.0) that we're running, but I'm largely figuring those out.

One thing that has me absolutely confused, though, is the exercise to create styles for an outline. On page 63 of the book, it says that I have an option for the counter to include the counter from the superior paragraph in addition to the curent level (Number Concatenation attribute). I don't see this anywhere. As a result, when I format the text in my text node with the various paragraph styles I created for the outline, I get results like this:

1Outline level 1

.1Outline sublevel 1

.2Outline sublevel 2

.aOutline sublevel a

.bOutline sublevel b

.3Outline sublevel 3

2Outline level 2

I want it to read as 1, 1.1, 1.2, 1.2.a, 1.2.b, etc. I cannot find this "Number Concatenation" attribute that the book references. Does someone know what I need to do to get this to work?

    The field is called 'Number chaining' - it's on the 'Numbering and Outline' tab when you edit a paragraph style.
