```Hello everyone!
I'm writing a report, and I'm facing the following problem: with \part and \chapter, the chapter numbering doesn't get to 1 when a part ends.
Eg: Part 1 ; Chapter 1, Chapter 2 ; Then Part 2 ; Chapter *3*, Chapter *4*, instead of Chapter 1 & 2 within part 2.

Is there a numbering hierarchy command to issue in the preamble (setcounter
stuff), or is it
normal, and therefore I only need to use \part OR \chapter separately in a
report documentclass ?
