You have documents in the Microsoft Office Open XML file format that use versioning and extensibility markup. For example, the documents are created in Word 2010 or Word for Mac 2011. When documents in the Microsoft Office Open XML file format (e.g. DOCX/DOCM files) are edited in Word 2010, Word for Mac 2011, or Word for Mac 2008, and then reopened in Word 2007, spaces are missing between some words in the document.
This issue may occur when you work with documents that are created in an application such as Microsoft Office 2008 for Mac.
Note: This update cannot fix documents after they are saved with the spaces removed; it only prevents future documents from experiencing the same issue. If a document has been saved in Word 2007 before this update, you will need to manually add the spaces between the affected words in the document.
