Debbie, I agree that rebuilding the doc based on a clean template is
probably the only answer, but that wasn't going to happen in the few
hours that I had available.

In fact, one of my current goals is to create new templates for
documents that are created from now on. The long-standing method for doc
creation has been to open a previously used document and modify it
rather than to start fresh. That's why the template is so thoroughly
messed up; probably dozens of users have modified it over the years!

I will take a look at the bookmarks too. Thanks!
Joyce

I hate to say this, but it sounds to me like you need to remake the
entire template from scratch in Word 2007, and then rebuild the document
based on the new template.

I have a feeling that will work (and mean no quick and dirty solution,
but a robust one for the future).

By the way, do try to delete all the bookmarks and see if that helps.
You can always put some back in where needed.

Deborah

Yep, tried that too. (Sorry, should have mentioned that.) No luck. In
fact, the more I try to fix this document, the worse the problems are
becoming. I swear that this template must be 15 years old if it's a day
and it's been modified by dozens of users who have little idea about
styles or Word's many quirks. Look at it sideways and something else
breaks!



Unless someone has another suggestion, I may have to raise the white
flag on this one. I hate to give up but it seems pointless to waste any
more time on it as other tasks pile up.



I appreciate the replies, both on and off list.

At this point the only thing I can think of is to try the old trick of
copying everything out of the document except the last paragraph out and
pasting it into a new doc and see if that does anything.

I tried copying/pasting a working caption and that didn't help either.
Previously I tried moving the table to a new position, which did help
with a few of the tables earlier but this time, no joy. I even recreated
the table on the previous page and that didn't fix the problem either.
I'm completely stumped how THAT didn't work!
