Petra, I haven't come across the exact problem, but it reminds me of a =
numbering fix I've come across which may or may not apply (sorry I can't =
more helpful!).

List numbering stuffs up particularly horribly when applied directly =
another numbered style.  Sometimes this can be fixed by inserting a =
line styled in a NON-NUMBERED format - eg. Normal style - between the =
numbered lines.

Some other list numbering fixes I've found -

- turn off automatic bulleting/numbering options.  The later the version =
Word, the more of these there are.
- save each numbered style to the template.
- turn off the 'automatically update style' option.

Don't ask for a why when the question has anything to do with styles and
list numbering... :-/

I've noticed in the Report Template in Word 97 provided by Microsoft
(FilmWatch Division Marketing Plan) the Outline Numbered List Template =
shows as active for the List Number style in Format/Bullets&Numbering is =
1 Heading 1, 1.1 Heading 2, 1.1.1 Heading 3 List Template which does not
seem to match the numbering in the Report Template. No numbering shows =
the List Templates through Format/Style/Bullets&Numbering. Can anyone
explain why the active List Template is the legal numbering one and how =
List Number style restarts numbering after a higher level? Thanks, Petra
