    conver auto number to hard numbers (Word 2000)

    I have a document that has auto numbered sections in outline numbering using several heading styles and normal style.
    I want to convert the auto numbers to "hard numbers" so I can cut and paste them into a new document without the numbers changing.
    Unlink fields does not work.
    How can I do this?

    Copy & paste them into Wordpad, then back into Word.

    Added: You can also run this one line to convert them.
    Press Alt+F11 to bring up the VBE.
    Press Ctrl+G to bring up the immediate window
    Paste the line: <pre>ActiveDocument.Range.ListFormat.ConvertNumber sToText</pre>

    into the window & press Enter.
