using Roman numerals in text

I have created two sections using the Numbering and Section option, one for front matter, in lower case roman numerals and the body text in regular numbers. My book is also divided into Parts (the larger sections of the book) Each Part has a separate page to start which is styled with a Paragraph style that is linked to the running header. So it goes Part, Chapter, subheading in the TOC, but only two sections in the numbering front matter and all the rest.

My problem is that when I use roman numerals to identify the Parts the running header treats them like text. So VI becomes Vi. It will work if I put a space between each II so I I works in the header, but V I I I is awkward looking.

Do I have to change my whole numbering and sections in order to solve this?roman.JPGheader part VII.JPGroman 2.JPG
