Paragraph Styles Not Updating

I am having to update a couple documents (contact directories) I created
under OOo some years ago. I had to save the documents in MS Word format
(*.doc), but used paragraph styles to maintain uniformity of style and ease
of maintenance. I wanted to change the color for a particular heading
style, and it should have changed the color for each of the headings of
that style. Unfortunately, modifying the paragraph style did not change
even the particular paragraph the cursor was on, let alone the other
headings of the same style.
I right-clicked on the paragraph style in the Styles list box, then chose
the "modify" option. I then chose the font effects tab, and changed the
color. I clicked "Apply" and "Ok". Nothing happened. I also made sure
the "automatically update" option was checked.
I saved the document as an ODT document and then tried the process again.
Again, nothing happened. The document was originally created in OOo (can't
say what version, just that I used a version recent enough to use ODF).
Any ideas what I can do, apart from changing each heading individually,
which styles are supposed to help me avoid?
I am using LO 3.4.3 (Portable Apps).
