Hi Uwe, Problem solved--my style file also called up hyperref and this was the source of the conflict. I think this problem could be classified as a complication due to importing from .tex. I wrote all my files in .tex and WinEdt and am now translating everything into LyX because of the extreme coolness of LyX.
If there's any list of "things to look out for when importing .tex files into LyX" I would add "Check for redundant loading of packages in style files that will lead to options clashes" to the list. Thanks for your help. Rob
