In Word 7.x for Windows 95, when you open a Word 97 document, outline numbered (multilevel) paragraphs may be incorrectly numbered.

NOTE: Blank lines may also be incorrectly numbered.


This problem occurs because the Word 97 Import Converter (Mswrd832.cnv) converts an outline numbered paragraph incorrectly if the paragraph is broken across a page break.

NOTE: When this problem occurs, a blank line (paragraph) is added above the page break and is assigned the heading style of the paragraph that follows the page break.


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:

Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem with certain versions of the Word 97 Import Converter.

This problem is corrected in the version of the converter available with Microsoft Office 97 SR-2. For information about how to obtain the latest version of the converter, see the "Resolution" section of this article.
