In Microsoft Word version 7.x for Windows 95, when you use the Word 97 Import Converter (Mswrd832.cnv) to open a Word 97 document, indents that were added to a style linked to outline numbering are lost.


The Word 97 Import Converter, Mswrd832.cnv, does not handle conversion of the indents appropriately.


To resolve this problem, upgrade to the latest version of the Word 97-2000 Import Converter. For additional information, please see the following article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:
