Permanent gray border around all pages of Word document

shaunwingin used Ask the Experts™
Say, please see the attached screen shot of a Microsoft Word document. The gray border surrounding the text is mine concern. How do I get rid of this? I cannot find what is causing this gray border around the text. Whichever Edit mode I chose, the gray border remains. It is something in the formatting, I would assume. Thanks, Shaun

It looks like the page colour has been changed and then a table inserted with white background so that you can see the text.

It was page colour but no table seems to be present. The large page boarder is still present
