Serious Bug in MS Word 2007: Doc Variables Turn To Garbage

I'm happy to say the solution has been found for a frustrating Microsoft Word bug.

Problem: Any Word 2007 document that uses Doc Variables will corrupt those values when the file is saved (yeah, nice). Anyone who has written custom macros that manipulate Doc Variables will run into this.

Cause: A security update (KB969604) first caused this problem to surface.

Solution: Microsoft Hot Fix ID KB970942. There is a link at the top that will bring you a form for requesting the fix via email. We've used this successfully internally.
