Issue with footnotes when converting from Word to PDF

I'm having the issue as several other users, where tiny codes of some sort are appearing before footnotes when I convert the file from Word to PDF. The codes are not there in Word. I've tried using different fonts. I've tried converting the document to a PDF in numerous different ways: saving as PDF, using the Adobe ribbon in Word, creating the file from Acrobat. (I'm using Windows 10 Enterprise.)


Here's what the codes look like, first from a low zoom level and then from a high zoom level.

Here are the other posts I found on this exact issue. None of them appear to have been solved.

The only advice I saw, either creating the PDF in a different way or checking the font, is not helping. Please advise?
