Word 97 and extra text being added

By zlitocook ·
I found an answer months ago on MS site on how to fix this. But cannot find it now. On a 95 computer with office97 both service packs. Word adds lines like normal.dot, paragraph and others before and after the paragraphs typed in. I deleted the normal.dot reinstalled word and did a general reinstall. I had the same problem 5 or 6 months ago on another users computer. All virus dat files are up to date.

This only shows up after closing and reopening the document.

I'm not sure what you're describing. If you are seeing paragraph markers etc., go to Tools>Options View and turn off any selections for Formatting marks (You should also be able to click on the Show/Hide button "?").

If you're seeing extra text and formatting characters, make sure you're not open the document using "Recover Text from any file".
Besides deleting Normal.dot, you'll also want to delete any tmp files that Word creates. They start with a tilde "~".
If I've completely mis-interpreted your question please exapand on the problem.
