Word Formatting again

By paulrhopkins ·
I created a document in Word 2000 using style sheets. My organisation has recently upgraded(?) to Word 2003 and since then ion virtually every chapter the paragraph numbering has gone haywire. Sub para numbering disappeared (best case, sub para numbering changed from number to alphanumeric. I have made sure that the "auto update" box in the style templates is unchecked.

I apologise if this topic has been covered before, I did look.

This is a MS upgrade incompatibility, you need to

reformat the whole document, take it back to Word 2000 if you can, and remove the paragraph numbering. Import to Word 2003 and add the paragraph numbering. You may be able to fix it through Open Office.

Another fix attempt may be to copy the document and then remove the ability to track changes and resave so it saves as a single document.
