Turn off auto-numbering in Word 97

Turn off auto-numbering in Word 97

Is it possible to turn off the automatic numbering feature (at the beginning of paragraphs, etc) in Word 97?  If so, how?  There are many times when this feature is nice, but in other cases it's really an irritating nuisance.  I'd like to make it so that automatic numbering is NOT the default, but I could turn this feature on when I need it.  Is this possible?  Thanks.

These settings are on the Tools>AutoCorrect menu. Select the Auto Format as You Type tab for these specific settings.
