Corrupt word documents?

Hi, I have a load of word documents that contain tables with borders around certain cells within the tables, but some cells without borders.

Now on my PC at home they look and print fine and also if you insert the document into another file they work fine (XP and word 2003)

At work (XP + Word 2002), whilst they look fine and print fine, if you insert he document into another file or just copy and paste the table into a new document, the table gets borders around all cells.

Has anyone heard of this. I did try recreating the table in the existing doc and this does cure the problem, but I have a hell of a lot of docs to 'repair' and was wondering if there is any quick way to fix them (nb not all tables in the document become 'corrupted' which is the strange thing!).

Any ideas anyone?

Thanks.

The only ting I can suggest is that there must be some commands in word 2003, that are not present in Word 2002, causing the problem.
Would it be easier when saving word files in word 2003 to select word 2002 option for saving.
