<startOverride> (Numbering Level Starting Value Override)

This element specifies the number which the specified level override shall begin with. This value is used when this level initially starts in a document, as well as whenever it is restarted via the properties set in the <lvlRestart> element (§2.9.11).

If they disagree, this value shall override the starting number of the child <lvl> element (§2.9.6).

<w:abstractNum w:abstractNumId="1"><w:lvl w:ilvl="0">
    <w:numFmt w:val="upperRoman" />
    <w:start w:val="2" /></w:lvl>

In this example, since upper case Roman numerals (upperRoman) are being used as numbering symbols for this numbering level, the first instance of a numbering paragraph associated with this abstract numbering definition and numbering level would have the numbering symbol II, the second letter in the number format.

Subsequent numbered paragraphs with this abstract numbering definition and at this level would have their numbering symbols incremented from II (the starting value for this numbering level). ]
