From microsoft forum fix spaces are missing between some words in the document:

I am a Microsoft employee, I lead the Program Management team for Office Sustaining Engineering.

This is a known issue with Word 2007.

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 2007 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 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.

If you patch your 2007 installation to the current update level, and you are authoring documents on patched versions of Word 2007 (or 2010), and you still experience this problem, please don’t hesitate to contact us.

You can send feedback or requests for help regarding files that submit this behavior (for patched versions of Word) via the email link on my blog:http://blogs.technet.com/gray_knowlton. We are very interested to know if users are still experiencing this problem after systems are patched.

Change the spacing between characters

Selecting Expanded or Condensed alters the spacing between all selected letters by the same amount. Kerning alters the spacing between particular pairs of letters – in some cases reducing and in other cases expanding the space depending upon the letters.

Expand or condense the space evenly between all the selected characters

  1. Select the text that you want to change.

  2. On the Home tab, click the Font Dialog Box Launcher, and then click the Advanced tab.

    Font Dialog Box Launcher

    Note: If you’re using Word 2007 the tab is called Character Spacing.

  3. In the Spacing box, click Expanded or Condensed, and then specify how much space you want in the By box.

    Use the font dialog to specify whether your character spacing should be expanded or compressed

Kern the characters that are above a particular size

Kerning refers to the way spacing between two specific characters is adjusted. The idea is to give a better looking result by reducing the spacing between characters that fit together nicely (such as “A” and “V”) and increasing the spacing between characters that don’t.

  1. Select the text that you want to change.

  2. On the Home tab, click the Font Dialog Box Launcher, and then click the Advanced tab.

    Font Dialog Box Launcher

    Note: If you’re using Word 2007 the tab is called Character Spacing.

  3. Select the Kerning for fonts check box, and then enter the point size in the Points and above box.

    Allow Word to set kerning between characters that are of a certain font size or larger

Stretch or scale the text horizontally

When you scale the text, you change the shapes of the characters by percentages. You can scale text by stretching it or by compressing it.

  1. Select the text that you want to stretch or compress.

  2. On the Home tab, click the Font Dialog Box Launcher, and then click the Advanced tab.

    Font Dialog Box Launcher

    Note: If you’re using Word 2007 the tab is called Character Spacing.

  3. In the Scale box, enter the percentage that you want.

    Percentages above 100 percent stretch the text. Percentages below 100 percent compress the text.

Change the line spacing

To increase or decrease the amount of vertical space between lines of text within a paragraph, the best method is to modify the style the paragraph uses.

  1. Find the style you’re using in the Styles gallery on the Home tab.

  2. Right-click the style you want to change and select Modify.

    Right-click the Caption style in the Styles gallery to modify the formatting of your captions.

  3. Near the center of the dialog box you’ll find the line spacing buttons that let you select single, 1.5x or double spaced. Choose the spacing you want to apply and click OK.

    Modify the line spacing options in your style to adjust vertical spacing in Word.

If you’d like to apply more specific line spacing to the style, clickthe Format button at the bottom left corner of the Modify Style dialog box and select Paragraph. The Line spacing drop-down lets you select or set more specific line spacing.

Use the Paragraph dialog box to set more specific spacing between lines of text
