The Outline Numbered tab contains eight previews. One of the preview windows contains no preview (denoted by the word "None"). Selecting this preview will remove any numbering scheme applied to the current selection. The other previews allow you to set different customized numbering schemes.
When your insertion point is in a numbered paragraph and you click the Outline Numbered tab in the Bullets And Numbering dialog box (click Bullets And Numbering on the Format menu), your custom number scheme should be selected but it may not appear in the same preview box as it did on the original computer.
When your insertion point is not in a numbered paragraph and you click the Outline Numbered tab in the Bullets And Numbering dialog box (click Bullets And Numbering on the Format menu), the selected number scheme appears in the top-left preview box instead of None and your customized numbering scheme may not appear.
For additional information about moving a customized numbering scheme to another computer, please see the following article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:

When you open a document that contains a custom outline number scheme on a computer other than the one used when you created the file, the outline number scheme may appear in a different preview window on the Outline Numbered tab.
NOTE: To locate the Outline Numbered tab, click Bullets And Numbering from the Format menu.
The custom outline number format is saved as a part of the document. Hence, when you open the document on another computer, the custom outline number scheme will be available.
