Linking Word docs - Style differences

I've been continuing my war with linking Word docs into my RoboHelp project. This has me baffled.

First, I ran a Word macro that puts the name of the style assigned to the paragraph in brackets. <[AHCISListNumberLevel01]> means Word style AHCISListNumberLevel01 is assigned to the paragraph, and <[AHCISListNumberLevel02]> means Word style AHCISListNumberLevel02 is assigned to the paragraph. What I can't wrap my head around is when I look at my HTML5 output, step 1 shows the <[AHCISListNumberLevel02]> style as left-aligned with the number 1 (which is wrong) but under step 3, <[AHCISListNumberLevel02]> is indented (which is correct). What am I missing?

Eternal gratitude awaits anyone that can solve this riddle!

As a follow-up, if I select a list that has multi-levels in my linked Word documents and apply a pre-defined list in Word, I am able to generate my HTML5 output and see what I expected. Thank you to all who offered suggestions – much appreciated!Ultimately, I will have ~100 Word docs linked to this project so it was very important to get this to work correctly.Paul

@Peter - that's what I thought, but the resulting doc file doesn't seem to represent what the OP was showing as a multi-level list example.

I was using the List Number 2, List Number 3, List Number 4, and List Number 5 styles from the Import902Import Tests.doc file.

I am continuing to work with with Adobe Tech Support. The test project they sent to me works fine on their side, but this is what I see:

The investigation continues ...

My point was not what the macro is supposed to do but any side effects.
