    I am thoroughly stumped on this one. I have a user with a brand new, freshly installed computer running Win7 (Prof, 64bit) and Office Pro 2010 (32bit). The computer is connected to a Win2008 Active Directory with roaming profiles.

    When the user downloads a report in .doc format on this computer, every table has a very odd bit of what appears to be scripting code of some type. Here is a sample:

    Here is the kicker –

    1. if the user goes to another computer and downloads the .doc file, the code block is not there
    2. if another user logs onto HER computer and downloads the .doc file, the code block is not there

    which tells me that the problem is NOT in the document itself, nor is there something wrong with the Office install on her computer.

    Hit alt + F9, while viewing that doc.
    Should toggle between code view and results.
