Hi Deborah,

I've encountered similar problems from time to time. Change bars is a 
character setting (check the Character Designer). It can be a property of 
characters, of character tags, and/or of paragraph tags. Check the doc 
you're importing from -- somewhere there may be a tag with change bars on.

Also, I don't recall if importing Document Properties picks up the Auto 
Change Bar setting, but it well might. Again, check the "import from" 

HTH. Let us know what the solution turns out to be.
