Checkboxes, hyperlinks, page number etc. problem in Word 2007

By Patrick_Marion ·
Word 2007 will not display insertions such as Check Boxes, Hyperlinks or Page numbers etc. properly. Instead what I get is code like:

{FORMCHECKBOX}
{PAGE \*MERGEFORMAT}
{HYPERLINK"http://www.domainname.com.au}

Same links/ documents opened in Word 2003 work fine but not in Word 2007.

Any help will be much appreciated. Thank you.

Looks like you're seeing field codes?

It looks to me like you're seeing Word field codes rather than the results of the code:

You can switch between displaying field codes and results in your document by pressing ALT+F9.

Let us know if that works out for you.
