Text inside Header not showing in Word 2007

Hi Everyone,

Hoping someone with Microsoft Office 2007 guru skills can help me on this one. We just migrated to Microsoft Office 2007 and are now experiencing an issue viewing the contents inside headers for documents created in Word 2003. In Word 2007 they are not displaying properly (it is okay when you print them) under Print Preview (2 examples attached). I can open them as .docx or .doc in either 2003 or 2007, but in Word 2003 it shows up okay (under print preview), even if it had to convert the docx, but under Word 2007 neither the .doc nor the .docx shows it. I have tried everything I can think of but remain stumped. HELP! :-)

I see in 2007, but not in 2003, you have your field codes turned on - not that I think it makes a difference - but it may get the experts going down the wrong path.

Did you check all your font settings for that cell (size, color, hidden, etc.)?  Can you post a file from each with just the header info (no patient data) so that we can look at the coding?

It could be a Style difference. (Incidentally it's "supersedes".)

Removed "show picture placeholders" under Word options _> advanced... then pictures show again.
