Hello,

Spent a couple hours trying to track this down, wondering if anyone has seen it. I have a word 2003 document that we use for filling out  time. When I open it in 2010, the form fields have an odd character in it. Almost looks like a center tab character. Have no idea what it is or how to get rid of it. If I delete the field and insert a new field, the same character appears. Anyone have any ideas?

See Screen shot...

Thank you!
Andy

Is the character visible whether or not the form is protected?

It sounds as if the document is corrupt, so you might try copying the open (unprotected) document and pasting it into a new blank document.
