I  have an existing word (original computer with windows xp pro and office 2003) doc with numbering 1.- 8. for example.  If I i place the cursor on the tex immediatley after number "3." and tab I get an  indent and an "a." etc,


The same document on my new computer with window 7 and office 2003 will not do this.  When pressing tab i can not get an "a." indented the tab just pushes the text all the way to the right margin

I tested this in both Word 2003 and Word 2010, and I got the a. when tabbing in both, so I suspect this is a problem with some obscure Word setting on his computer -- does anybody know what it is?

I found something on Shauna Kelly's Word Website that says that numbering is done differently in Word 2003 and later versions.  This could be a problem if the document is sometimes used in Word 2003 and sometimes in Word 2012, which I think is the case here.
