Default display of fields

When I open a word document, the contents of the field codes are exposed. For example: {FILLIN "Defendant's name" \* MERGEFORMAT}. I can't see the text and everywhere a field is, I'm seeing the code (like above). If I ctrl+a and toggle field codes, the code disappears and I'm able to see the text as normal. The problem is only on my workstation.
Could you please tell me how I can fix this? I want to be able to open the document and see the text, not the field codes.

Thank you in advance,
Shannon
