I cannot duplicate the issue here, using MBA2012 and Office 2011.
Check to make sure you have all Microsoft updates for Office installed. If it still persists, you could try re-installing Ofiice.

I already tried re-installing MS Office, same thing happens. There must be a setting somewhere that is amiss.
Does anyone else have any thoughts?

You could also try deleting the microsoft preference files, incase something has gone amiss there.
Make sure all Office application are quit fully
Go to User/[unername]/Library/Preferences
Outlook is there too, so if it is causing you issues, you can delete them too
Next time you open your office applications, the new prefernce files are created. Any particular preferences that you had set will of course need to be reset as they are now all new (default) again.
Another thing to check is in you System Preferences - General
Do you have the 'close windows when quitting an application' checked? if not, checking it may fix the issue.

I just did some further testing here and can duplicate your multiple documents opening.
With the setting above unchecked, if I have multiple word documents open and I use CMD-Q to quit word, rather than closing the documents, the next time I open one file, these previous files also open.
With the setting checked, this does not occur.
Hope this helps

Thank you so much for your help! I followed your advice above about checking the "close windows when quitting an applicaton" and that resolved the problem immediately. Thanks again!
