使用2007 MS Word版本的客户在收到编辑所修改完稿后，打开文件会发现字间空格都走位。

This is a known issue with Word 2007. The issue is also discussed in another thread.
The issue has already been addressed in a release that first appeared on September 25, 2008. The “non-security fixes” section of the article describes the behavior. The knowledge base article and solution for the problem are located under the link. For Office 2007 users who will receive your documents, ensure they are current on updates for Office. Specifically, ensure the patch referenced in the link above is installed, or ensure the user of 2007 has installed Office 2007 Service Pack 2.
The easiest way to obtain the fix is to install Office 2007 Service Pack 2.
This is an issue related to opening files that we discovered and fixed before the shipment of Office 2010. It was important enough for us to push the fix through the security update channel. At Microsoft we were able to re-produce the problem on machines which did not have the patch installed for Office 2007, and we are unable to reproduce the problem on machines that have the patch installed.
Yesterday we re-tested this problem based on the information being reported in the forums and on various blogs. There are a few details worth noting:
– If you have already saved the document in an unpatched version of Word and the spaces are missing, unfortunately there is no way to recover them.
– When you send the file to other users from Office 2010, unpatched users who edit the document may cause the spaces to disappear. It is important to ensure Office 2007 users are patched with this update, and ensuring that can be done by turning on Automatic Updates.
Related to the other forum post on this topic:
– In our testing, turning spooling services on and off did not affect the problem.
– Additionally, the presence (or not) of a specific printer driver or any printer driver did not solve or cause the problem.
As has been reported on various blogs, the Open XML standard is not the cause of the issue. This is an issue with Word 2007, and we believe a solution has been available since 2008.
We certainly regret any inconvenience this issue may have caused.”
**如同上面微软工程师的所说的，解决这问题最简单跟快速的方法就是下载 Office 2007 Service Pack 2。
