Deleted spaces between words in a .DOC & .DOCX using Office 2010 & Office 2007

Last Modified: 2013-11-05

I've been receiving word documents from colleagues and experiencing problems with random documents. There are times when I receive documents, they come out with deleted spaces between words.

For example if a sentence is supposed to be typed like this: Hello this is my audit report today.

The result: Hello this ismy auditreport today.

I have a screenshot to give you a visual on what I'm trying to emphasize.

here are some of the things i've done so far...change from .docx to .doc, changed font, resize text, changed the style, adjust margins, page orientation, used different computers.

*some experts online indicated a print driver update, however I dont see how that can fix it, the words are displayed like that on all computers, something's corrupted in these word documents but I can't figure out a solution. please help! thanks
