"Can't split this document. It contains no Heading styles."

Trying to import a Word .doc file I get the message, "Can't split this document. It contains no Heading styles."

What does Confluence look for to identify a heading style? Paragraph styles for headings that should appear in the TOC are ChapterTitle, Heading1, Heading2, Heading3, and Heading4.

The headings have to be default Word styles. I changed ChapterTitle to Title and Heading# to Heading # and it worked.

It looks for the standard/default: heading1, heading2, etc.

Could you post the document? It would allow others to see how it is formatted.
