    currenlty the number of heading level when exporting to Word, is 7.
    Since we use more than 7 levels in the JAMA project tree, we need Word to support more than 7 levels.

    Thanks, Fred, for sharing this Idea. I have heard from customers in the past a need to support greater than 6 headings upon import of documents—is that a need your organization has as well? Or is it just exporting?

    We do not see an immediate need for support greater than 6 levels upon import but wouldn't rukle it out.
    I assume the problem is caused by a (third party?) interface between JAMA and Word and when the restriction for 6 levels in export is solved, it'll probably be solved for import as well.

    Yeah, you're correct that this is caused by a limitation of the tool we use for the Jama/Word interface (Aspose). Thanks for the added comments!

    Hello Kristina,
    I am requesting that JAMA support more than 6 levels.  We export to word in order to interface with Third Parties and this would be a great feature to have! Thank you!

    Ian, we ended up logging a bug for the behavior that Fred described, SOS-DEF-849. The fix for this just went out in our 2016/05/21 hosted release and will be available on-premises soon. The fix will enable exporting to 9 levels deep (as that is the maximum with the third party interface).

    Hi Kristina,
    I still have the problem with Jama not importing beyond level 6 in the hosted version. Can you please confirm that this fix has been put into hosted version 8.7

    Hey Amit, this thread is about exporting to Word, not importing. The defect you are encountering, SOS-DEF-498, is not yet fixed.
