Problem with Word - marcos

We export documents from 'program' into Word on a daily basis. This morning I was playing around with macros in Word in order to apply it to these documents.  I’m not sure what I did, but now every time I export something from 'program' it exposes all the coding.

If I email this document to another person, it looks ok.  So I guess this is only on my computer.

Other than going through the whole document deleting all the weird hyperlink jargon, is there a way to correct this?


Thanks!

It isn't clear to me what precise problem you are experiencing.

You can always see the VBA code with Alt+F11 shortcut.

If the field codes, instead of the field results, are visible, the toggle for that is Alt+F9.

If neither of these works, can you expand on "Other than going through the whole document deleting all the weird hyperlink jargon, is there a way to correct this?"

There is a 'program' that exports report into the Word format and saves on the desktop.  

When it does that it has that sync symbol on the icon.  If I send this file to someone it looks OK.  If I open on my PC it all messed up.  All the links are exposed into the actual paths and htmls.

ALT+F9 helped :-)

I suppose  that you just didn't understand that some if your document comprises fields. Fields are a way of displaying some sort of composed or calculated text that is not necessarily entered at that point in the document. Alt +F9 toggles between the view that shows the fields that provide that data, and the resultant data itself.
