Office 2010 in Arabic Language

I currently have a user that needs to have Arabic language installed in office 2010. This is all installed fine. The problem that I am having is that for the user to create a new document in Arabic or to modify an existing one they need to enter a number first before any text appears in the document!

Any help in this would be appreciated. I have searched Google and found nothing and Microsoft have no clue.

Many thanks

In order for Microsoft Office to work properly with Arabic Language you need to go to Control panel / Regional and Language settings.

Goto Administrative Tab
Under Language for non-unicode programs  select Change system locale to (Arabic Saudi Arabia)
It will require restart. so do close all your applications and restart.
One you restart try any of Office products and see if your issue has been solved.

If not please post a screen shot of what exactly is happening to you.

Moh10ly, thank you for the comment. This did not resolve the issue. Attached is a screen shot, it appears it is not just numbers which are need before typing in Arabic, IE a space will work also.

Fixed this myself, the problem was caused by a word addin.

All other comments did not provide a solution. Disabling the correct addins resolved the issue.
