  • Microsoft Word 97 Standard Edition

This article was previously published under Q170032


When you save a Microsoft Word 97 for Windows document with the Word 6.0/95 binary format converter, multilevel and heading numbering are changed to plain text.


This problem is caused by the Word 97 RTF Export Converter (Wrd6ex32.cnv ) that ships with Microsoft Word 97 for Windows. The number formatting feature in Word 97 provides for greater customization of heading and multilevel numbering than Word 6.0 or Word 7.0.


Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in the Microsoft products that are listed at the beginning of this article.

This problem was corrected in Microsoft Office 97 Service Release 2 (SR-2).

For additional information about SR-2, please see the following article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:

151261 OFF97: How to Obtain and Install MS Office 97 SR-2


SR-2 includes an updated version of the Wrd6ex32.cnv converter which causes the multilevel and heading numbering to be converted to Word 6.0/95 heading numbering format.
