  • Hi,

    Do you have Home and Student Version of Office? 

    When you start a Microsoft Office Home and Student 2010 or 2007   program, the title bar of the program displays the name of the program followed   by "non-commercial use." For example, Microsoft Office Excel 2007 displays   "Microsoft Excel non-commercial use" or "Book1 - Microsoft Excel non-commercial   use." 

    Cause:

    The "non-commercial use" text is based on the Microsoft Software License Terms for Office Home and Student 2010 or 2007 products.   

    In the Microsoft Software License Terms, the "non-commercial use" text identifies the use of the product. You may install one licensed copy of the software on three devices in your household. The software is not licensed for any commercial business activities, nonprofit business activities, or revenue-generating business activities.

    To find the Microsoft Software License Terms, follow these   steps, as appropriate for your situation.

    It's recommended to download and install Configuration Analyzer Tool (OffCAT), which is developed by Microsoft Support teams. Once the tool is installed, you can run it at any time to scan for hundreds of known issues in Office programs.

    Since the question is more related to Word product and the document, I have moved this thread to Technet Word forum for more effective responses.

    Thanks for your understanding.
