Updating fields word
For example, the only field that can be updated automatically (when any change occurs) is the “Date” field!
Why this option is exclusively set to the “Data” field? Word has never had such an option, but has had an option to update links automatically. There are numerous fields a user wouldn't want to update automatically, including ASK & FILLIN fields.
a longer table of contents changes some page numbers in the main text. This includes updates of page numbers in '' tables (but would not add or remove entries).
They help perform the magic involved with many of the most powerful features in Word, such as mail merging, indexing, automatic generation of tables of contents, automatic figure numbering, cross-referencing, page numbering, and more.

Update Wend Next sr End Sub '' Update all the fields, indexes, etc. '' This is a parameterless subroutine so that it can be used interactively.For example, when you insert a date or time and set it to be automatically updated, Word inserts a code.Throughout this book, you’ve been learning about fields in an indirect way.Whenever a feature has been discussed that used a field, you’ve learned to insert that field via a button or dialog box, but you haven’t looked too deeply yet at what’s really going on behind the curtain.Table 16.1 lists some of the Word features that employ fields and cross-references them to where those skills are covered in the book.In this chapter, you see how fields work and how to insert them, and you find out how to use form fields to create forms.Many people use fields in Word without even realizing it because so many of Word’s features automatically insert and modify fields.In fact, it's ok if I have to run the macro two or three times before it stabilizes. We do this first so that they contain all necessary '' entries and so extend to their final number of pages. I just want to have a single macro that finds everything.) My attempt so far doesn't update fields in text boxes inside figures.
