    revise word outlines (2000)

    In a law office, outlined documents are frequently modified and shared for editing. how can the intergity of the original outline template be retained? Is there any way to correct an outlined document that has been modified several times and becomes scrambled?

    Prevention is the best cure - threaten to sue anyone who messes up the document! <img src=/S/evilgrin.gif border=0 alt=evilgrin width=15 height=15>

    But seriously, I don't think there is a general recipe - it very much depends on how the document has been modified. Sometimes it is enough to remove manual formatting and to (re)apply styles, but it's also possible that you have to do more work, especially if numbering has been applied in a haphazard way.

    I assume the "template" is a document (DOC) and not a Word template (DOT). In that case, to prevent overwrites of the original, save the DOC as read-only (apply a password to overwrite the document, but not to open it). Alternatively, if you use a document management system, use the DMS's document security features.
