What you are seeing is the hidden field codes in Word, which is the hidden code EndNote uses to hold the reference information for your formatted citations. To fix the problem:

On Windows:

Word 2000/2002/2003:

   1. In Word, go to the "Tools" menu, and select "Options".

   2. Here, on the "View" tab, uncheck the box named "Field Codes".

   3. Click "OK".

   4. The document should now appear normal.

Word 2007:

   1. Within Microsoft Word 2007 go to the Office icon in the upper left, and click "Word Options" at the bottom of this window.
   2. Click on the Advanced option on the left hand side and scroll down to the section titled “Show Document Content.”
   3. Uncheck the item titled “Show field codes instead of their values” and click OK.
   4. The document should now appear normal.

 

On a Macintosh:

1. In Word, go to the "Word" menu, and select "Preferences".

2. Here, on the "View" menu, uncheck the box named "Field Codes".

3. Click "OK".

4. The document should now appear normal.

This setting is a universal setting for Word, so making this change should fix any documents that are currently displaying the field codes.
