This is a bit of a longshot, but check to see if you have an empty
paragraph formated with the style you have referenced. That has
happened to me in the past.

An easy way to view how all the paragraphs are styled:

1. Switch to normal view if you are in a different view.

2. On the Tools menu, click Options, and then click the View tab.

3. In the Style area width box under Outline and Normal options, enter
a measurement for the width of the style area, for example, 1.2"

Microsoft Word displays the paragraph style name in the style area to
the left of your document.
