Thanks a lot. that Works One hundred percent.

I have noticed that the Arabic numbers in the section seem to be going
in the wrong direction.

I have chapter 1

then a section which is 1.1
then another section whic is supposed to be 1.2 (But latex compikes it as 2.1)

Maybe I am wrong, have a look please
