Word docs printing scripts

Hi, all:

When I print a Word document that is from a template, the scripts are
printing out; at least I think they are the scripts. (the templates
have preset fields which fill automatically when the document is
opened). When I open the document from a different computer and print
(to any of the printers in the office) the document prints normally. I
have tried sending the document I have opened on my computer to other
printers in the office and it will print the scripts. This suggests
that the problem is with my computer rather than my printer. I checked
Google using various search terms, but did not come back with any
answers.

I recall this happening a few months ago and when I restarted my
computer, it worked fine. I have tried this; I have tried keeping the
computer off for extended periods of time, but it is still printing
this way.

Any ideas?

Thank you in advance for your suggestions,

SMC

I assume that what you describe as "scripts" is that you see the _field
codes_, e.g.:
{ DATE \@ "MMMM d, yyyy }
instead of the _field results_, e.g.:
February 21, 2007

If this is correct, try this:
Select Tools > Options > Print tab. Below "Include with document", turn off
"Field codes". Click OK.

Thank you, Lene!

While I did not have "field codes" checked, "hidden text" was.

Thank you!
