How can I create automatically numbered headings in Microsoft Word?

I think the easiest way to explain what I want is to show it :) Here’s what I want to do:

1. First heading
1.1. First sub-heading
1.2. Second sub-heading
2. Second heading
2.1. More sub-headings
2.2. Etc…

I want Word to add the number automatically so that it is adjusted if I add headings later. I do know that there is the numbering option if I modify the headings styles BUT it doesn’t work the way it should! Word does add the numbers automatically but the above headlines are unfortunately numbered like this:

1. First heading
2. First sub-heading
3. Second sub-heading
4. Second heading
5. More sub-headings
6. Etc…

So now you know the problem that I have :( How can I fix this? How can I get Word to number sub-headings in a way that considers the parent heading number? I hope that somebody can help me… Thanks in advance!
