Issue: A downloaded Form loses its formatting causing formatting issues similar to the following:
- A 1-2 page document to unexpectedly expand to 2-4 pages in length;
- Extra blank rows are created for no apparent reason;
- Tables inserted into a form lose their boundaries and appear to overlap or be in conflict with each other.
Formatting features in Word documents created using versions of MS-Word that are different from your version of Word may exhibit unexpected behavior as described above.
The usual solution is to convert such a document to your version of Word, if possible.
However, opening the same converted document on yet a different version of Word may still exhibit other issues that are different from the original issue.
You will most likely need to find a compatibility pack for the Microsoft Word Version that you have and download that compatibility pack.
