    Bullet Problem - Word 97

    Hi Everyone

    There is probably a really simple solution to this problem, but I can't for the life of me find out what it is.

    I'm using Word 97 SR-2 on an NT 4 PC. When I try and add a bullet to a paragraph, Word adds the bullet to *all* paragraphs, not just the one I'm currently in (or have highlighted).

    I've tried highlighting the para's that I don't want bulleted and removing the bullets from just these para's, but Word removes the bullets from *all* para's.

    It's got me completely stumped (and very annoyed). Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Hi Carmel,

    Go to Format>Style, then click on the Modify button.
    You'll then see a "Modify Style" dialog.
    Is there a checkmark next to "Automatically update"? - if so, turn off the checkmark.

    Thanks Gary, <img src=/S/joy.gif border=0 alt=joy width=23 height=23>

    I think you've solved my problem.

    I can cancel my reservation at the "funny farm" - I'm not going crazy after all (not yet anyway).

    Thanks again.
