Hi all,

Setting aside the abject horror that working with Word brings on, I am
hoping someone might be able to help me with an odd thing.

I have a document with Heading 1 being used in a normal way. In my page
footer, I insert a field that is a StyleRef to Heading 1. The result should
be that the text of Heading 1 is reproduced in my header, but no, no, no,
silly Microsoft user.

Instead of: Product Compliance Matrix

I get: 2BProduct Compliance Matrix

The one before has 1Bnnnn and the one after has 3Bnnn, etc.

Can anyone tell me how to eliminate all this?

Please cc me directly, as I am on digest.
