Thanks Séamas, I've about reached the same conclusion just not so sure how to go about it.

Thanks again...

You should probably be aware that the automatic bullet feature (and the
automatic numbering feature) in Microsoft Word does not place the
appropriate characters within the text, as it seems to do, but simulates
them by means of templates that are stored in another part of the file
(if I understand correctly). When a text containing bullets added by
this feature is opened in a different application the bullets may change
to different characters, or to numbers, or may be lost completely.

I presume something similar happens when the process is reversed.

I would strongly advocate not using this feature at all but, if you want
bullets, to add them explicitly as characters.

For outline numbering or dynamic numbering generally I don’t think there
is any solution other than substituting the actual numbers as plain text
before converting a document.
