Compiling not playing nice with Word for some layout features

I am having trouble compiling a poetry chapbook to Word. It’s not preserving formatting for one of my “poems” which is actually a play on a course evaluation with lots of tabs and such. It was imported from Word originally and then worked on in Scrivener and compiled back out. Any suggestions? Happy to provide more details if helpful.

“Lots of tabs” is the clue. Check:

: tab settings in ruler for the affected paragraphs in Word and compare with same in Scrivener. Both tools put the text at the tab stops.

: count that you have the same number of tabs in the same locations in both.
