    figure out how to delete the extra fill in fields, please help! Thanks.

    Press Alt+F9 to display all the field codes in the document. Find the
    ones that say FILLIN and delete the ones you don't want.

    I don't think Word Help is that specific. It takes two bits of knowledge
    about fields: first, that FILLIN fields don't display anything until you've
    filled in a value, so they're normally invisible; and second, that Alt+F9
    (or the Field Codes option in Tools > Options > View) toggles all field
    codes on so you can see them and delete them.
