And if you need to reset the table number in each section so you have stuff 
like this:
3.1.1: Heading
3.1.1-1: Table
3.1.2: Heading
3.1.2-1: Table (instead of 3.1.2-2: Table)

then I think you need your heading 3 to be H:<n>.<n>.<n+><n=0>

Haven't got FM here to test it though.

Cheers, Rebecca

Yes, it's possible, but not like this. You'll have to create a single
numbering stream for both headings and tables. 

If your headings are now defined as 
you can change this to 
H:<n>.<n>.<n+>< >
and your table definition is 
H:Table <n>.<n>.<n>-<n+>

The < > means that the number won't be displayed in your headings. 

Your numbering scheme would be a bit unusual, though. Using only the
chapter number is more common, IMO. 
H:Table <n>.< >.< >-<n+>
