Word Styleref question

I have a document with a template. I use it a lot with Word. The problem is that my word knowledge is limited, and I normaly do not use Windows. I now work in a multilanguage environment.

The template is using the {STYLEREF "Heading 1"} macro, or what its called. The problem is that for users that are opening the document with a Word version in another language gets an errormessage here.

This is since "Heading 1" is changed to, in this case "Überschrift 1". The {STYLEREF "Heading 1"} is not automagically changed, thus the error. Is there a cure against this ?

I know the question might be better asked in a Word forum, but since I normaly don't use Windows I am not sure where to start looking. I did try Google but none of my questions resulted in any interesting hits.

What I have done so far is to make a PDF from the Word document, and thus solving the problem.

The macro you are referring to appears to be a user defined macro.  Setting up a pre-defined style does not appear to generate an error in Word.

Instead of saving as a .pdf you could save as an .rtf file. This will disable all macros but still leave the document editable in Word if that is what you want.
