    At my work we have templates from Word 2003.

    When we open them in Word 2007 they doesn´t work as they should.

    We have for example a menu like

    2 Electronics
    2.1 Phones
    2.1.1 Mobile phones

    When you make an uppdate on the menu the sub-numbers disapear so it is
    2 Electronics
    Mobile phones

    Also in 2003 you get a menu to the right where you can change in the list not only the types but also the numbering. Is there something like that in 2007?

    A couple of things.

    Firstly here is an interactive guide for some of the features in 2003 - 2007. It is useful in some circumstances

    In regards to using 2003 templates for 2007 - i noticed that not all things worked in the same way in 2007 especially when it came to printing (things would display differently to how they would print)

    I work for a big company and i had to redesign alot of templates. Sorry.

    In regards to changing the numbering, you now right click on one of the actual numbers within the document and you can change the numbering from there.

    Hope that all makes sense.
