select Numbering. There, specify how you want the chapter numbering (start 
a 1? numeric, alphabetic, roman?), the page numbering, paragraph numbering 
(if numbering figures, do they restart a 1 in each chapter?), footnotes, 
and table footnotes.

Then, select the other files in your book and specify their numbering.

Lastly, in the book file, select Edit > Update Book. Your chapter numbers 
should update as you want. If not, check your Numbering settings again. 
(Be sure you are displaying the chapter numbers and titles in the book, 
not the path names for the chapter files.)

Hope that helps!

Need help in getting autonumbering to work...

I am using Framemaker 5.5.

Have "bookfile" with several chapters in this bookfile.
Each chapter (obviously) is a separate file (dot fm).
Each chapter file start on Right Master page.
Each Chapter has Header such as 
          Introduction  Chapter 1
Paragraph Tag:     chapter_title
Autonumber format (box): checked
entered:  "C:   Chapter: <n+>"
clk Apply button
clk Update All button
Shift-> Save all files 

Can not autonumber Chapter Numbers.
Performed above with Chapter 1 file open and cursor
inserted at chapter heading...

Obvious question:
How do I get Chapters to autonumber?
(Files or chapters auto number for pagination OK (???)

thanks in advance ...
