Linking levels on a process flow diagram.

Linking levels on a process flow diagram.


I am using Visio 2003 to create a business process diagram.
I am trying to create the diagram over several levels, i.e. Level 0 is high level predefined processes, then level 1 consists of a number of other diagrams that further exlpains each process in Level 0 and level 2 further breaks down the level 1 processes.

So i would like to be able to auto number my process boxes, is it possible to do this (as you can with chaptering in MS Word).

Numbering would hopefully work someting like this:
Level 0:
One Diagram
1 - 2 - 3 - 4 - 5

Level 1:
5 Diagrams(if each of the 5 processes above has one diagram below it)

Level 2 (for example each has 3 futyjer diagrams)
etc etc

Is this possible?
Auto numbering would be really helpful as i find myself moving processes around in order and position.

Many thanks.
