Question Stop bullets elsewhere changing

I write quite long documents (50 to 60 sides) using Word 2007. I quite often need to use formatting such as bullets or numbering. However, I note that changing bullets on one page changes a whole bunch of bullets (or even removes them completely) elsewhere. I can't see this immediately as I am on one page while the changes are elsewhere. How can I stop Word from doing this? I know that sometimes control-z gets rid of surplus formatting but I surely don't need to do this every time?

I have tried to look at some pages explaining bulleting in word - they make little sense to me. All I want to do is to change the formatting on one page without messing anything else up. Why does Word seem to want to change styles affecting the whole document when you only want to change the text in question?
