I am trying to create a report document template with a basic outline using
styles so that the headings and formatting are automatic:

I am finding this incredibly difficult and confusing.  The further I try to
teach myself how it works, the more confused I get.  Could somebody give me
a simple step by step process to create the following outline in an existing
document, addressing the the different types of styles involved?

I would be very greatful.  Thanks.
Highlight the text you want this numbering to apply to.
Select the text format drop down (on left of font) and pick more, the styles dialogue opens. Select list styles from the icons. You can make a new style or say double click Numbering 5. Right click numbering 5 and modify. Under outline tab I think you want lower left, select it. Under options tab select each level on the left and change the "Start at" back to 1.
Select OK.

Select each block of text to lower 1 level, as all will be at the top level, and with the pop up bullets and numbering tool select the "Demote 1 level with subpoints".

Demote the text to the required subpoint as needed.

Confusing, don't know why the subpoints don't start numbering from 1.
