For the formatting to show correctly, the style sheet the doc is
attached to must be in the directory it was in when it was attached. To
find out what that directory is, open the doc using the Text Only import
filter. The path to the style sheet (typically C:\WORD\NORMAL.STY) will
show up with the rest of the header info, right near the top of the
first page. Recreate the path, put the style sheet there, then reopen
the doc using the Word 3.x-5.x for DOS import filter. Of course, if you
no longer have the style sheet around, then yes, you'll to reformat by
hand.
