    Word 2000 Styles (Word 2000 SR1)

    I remember reading somewhere about an "undocumented feature" in Word that when you create a style, if you do **** you end up with odd style names/behavior, but I don't remember where I read it or any other details. I remember you end up with style names like "Normal, My Style Name" which is what's happening to some of our users, but I don't remember what causes that to happen or how to fix it.

    HELP!

    It sounds like a style name alias. This doesn't usually cause dramas but can give a couple of odd side effects and prove problematic in exports to other software.

    It might be worth reading this thread. Robyn had a useful macro listed there.

    Some built-in styles cannot be deleted or renamed. Heading styles are an example. If you try to rename Heading 1 to H1, it ends up as Heading 1,H1. i.e. it appends the alias, as Andrew has mentioned. An alias allows you to type the alias in the style box & press enter, to apply the style. Whether that's useful or not is up to individual tastes. It doesn't change the behavior of the style.
    Cheers,
