As suggested, you can use the enumitem package to accomplish this. See
if the following MWE serves your purpose:

========
\documentclass{article}

\usepackage{enumitem}
\setlist[enumerate]{label=\arabic*)}
\setlist[enumerate,2]{label=\Alph*)}
\setlist[enumerate,3]{label=\alph*)}

\begin{document}

\begin{enumerate}
\item Blah.
\item Blah.
\begin{enumerate}
\item More blah.
\item More blah.
\begin{enumerate}
\item Still more \ldots
\item Still more \ldots
\item Still more \ldots
\end{enumerate}
\item More blah.
\end{enumerate}
\item Blah.
\item Blah.
\end{enumerate}

\end{document}
