This is from searching in Help in Word 2003:

You can find and replace all instances of single or double curly quotes with straight quotes in your document. To do this, clear the "Straight quotes" with "smart quotes" check box on the AutoFormat As You Type tab. On the Edit menu, click Replace. In both the Find what and Replace with boxes, type ' or ", and then click Find Next or Replace All.

So, just replace all the curly quotes to straight quotes before you do your cut and paste, and that should fix it.

Word defaults to using curly quotes rather than standard
straight quotes.
That's the cause of your problem. Go into the Autocorrect
options (it's in the Tools menu in Word 2003, not sure how to
find it in Word 2007, since I don't have that) and turn off
the Replace as you type option for converting straight quotes
to curly quotes.

Thanks, I've disabled it on my pc but the problem is coming from me pasting text copied from other users' documents.
