help - how to get a beseiged force to attack

Can anyone tell me how to get a besieged force to sally forth and attack the besiegers? I'm talking about where I have around a 3 to 1 force advantage over those besieging me (I put the army in the city to winter out and then the AI set up a siege). The button to instruct the army to sortie out seems to only work if you send a relief force - am I right? But I don't need a relief force when I have a 3 to 1 predominance - I just need to get my army to go out and attack. I've tried setting the stance on as aggressive as possible. No joy. Anyone know how to do it? Many thanks.

EDIT/UPDATE: Don't worry - I think I've worked it out now. Thanks

You edited the message already, but did you try putting the army outside the city/structure in the province itself? With an offensive stance.
