very bizzare anyone help?

i have an intermitent prob with someof my word docs. XP pro O.S and Xp std office. Certain word docs when i open them have in the task bar at the bottom the message "469 characters an aproximate value" Then after a second or two it goes to its normal "page 2 of 3" if i were to try to print this doc it would print out 60 or so blank sheets of paper. and if i scroll down with the scroll bar to the bottom it keeps inventing new blank pages, ie "page 97/589" it will keepdoing this and invent more and more blank pages. Has anyone ever come accros this before, cos i'm stumped.

thanks in anticipation.

click here might help.

How many documents does this happen with?

"469 characters an aproximate value" is normal behaviour by the way but you normally only notice with very large documents.
