    Restart numbering kills Word (2003)

    I'm editing a document that I set up with automatic paragraph numbering. I used Word styles to set up the numbering scheme. I let other people write material into the document, and then I got it back to edit it. I found a place at the beginning of chapter 6 where the numbering for sub-paragraphs needed to be restarted. I right-clicked on the numbering and clicked "Restart numbering." That single action shut down Word

    I fear that the document has become corrupt. You can find several methods that may help repairing it in How can I recover a corrupt document or template - and why did it become corrupt? on the Word MVP site.

    MAH-velous! I've been at my desk for only 10 minutes, and I've already banished the corruption from the document
