Ms word footer field not updating

08-Feb-2020 20:22

(If it works in other versions, all the better; I originally had this problem with Word 2007, and nothing seems to have changed since then.) This includes cross-references, page numbers, tables of contents, indexes, headers, etc. If it can be updated by pressing , I want it updated. Field code syntax Field codes appear between curly brackets ( ).Fields behave like formulas in Microsoft Office Excel — the field code is like the formula, and the field result is like the value that the formula produces.

For example, you can insert a hyperlink by using the HYPERLINK field, but it is easier to use the Hyperlink command in the Links group on the Insert tab.

I just want to have a single macro that finds everything.) My attempt so far doesn't update fields in text boxes inside figures.

I'm pretty sure it didn't in Word 2007 but I no longer have it to test.

You can switch between displaying field codes and results in your document by pressing ALT F9.

I have document with some document variables in and I'm trying to use those variables in the document.

Fields are an important part of Word, but it’s good to know that many fields are inserted for you through built-in commands and features.
