MS word 2007 field codes are shown

 PhD Panic -

I'm working on a long word document and all of a sudden field codes are displayed instead of references, page numbers etc. I followed what some people have posted in this forum to remove the field codes and it was fine. But after I re-open the saved documnet, it still appears the same way. And every time I close and re-open it, I have to remove the field codes. Does anyone know a permanent solution for this?
