Can't recreate a style with the same name

I have Office 365, and I'm using Microsoft Word. I guess it's version is Word 2013. I created a style called "test", then decided to remove it. When I try to create a style with the same name, I get a popup message saying:

"The style name already exists or is reserved for a built-in style".

But the style isn't there anymore. When I removed it, I saw it disappear from the ribbon Styles section.

Can anyone try to do what I'm doing and see if you get the same problem?

My guess: you haven't actually deleted it, you've just removed it from the Ribbon Styles section. There is a check box which does that.

Therefore, go into the Styles organiser, find the Test style, and delete it.

Thank you, Phillip! I called up Microsoft technical support for Office 365 for this FOUR TIMES! And after more than an hour later, NONE of them could tell me what you told me!

I have lost faith in Microsoft's technical support. They outsource their tech support and end up having incompetent and incapable people.

Thanks again, you really hit the nail on the head, and after all the hardship I went through, it makes my appreciation for your to-the-point answer!
