All fields are not Updated in MS Word
  

Hi everyone,
I am facing a strange problem with the MS Office. I have observed that when I make changes to the fields, the all fields are not getting updated properly. I even tried to reinstall the application but still the same thing is happening. Does anyone out there know why this is happening.?? I have lot of things but this issue is not getting fixed. Please provide me with the solution for All fields are not Updated in MS Word. Help me as soon as possible.!!

Re: All fields are not Updated in MS Word

This problem occurs because some fields are fields of "Show". This means you do not perform a calculation. These fields show an outcome even when they are not updated, and appear when you print the document. "Show" fields include AUTONUM, AUTONUMLGL, AUTONUMOUT, BARCODE and EQ. Some other fields are related to printing and pagination are updated only when you print or preview the document. These fields include DATE, TIME, PAGE, PAGEREF, PrintData, REF and SectionPages.

Re: All fields are not Updated in MS Word

To resolve this problem, make sure that all fields are updated when you print or preview the document. If you are using the Microsoft Office Word 2003 or the previous version than that, then follow the below steps :
  1. On the Tools menu, click Options.
  2. Click the Print tab.
  3. Click the Update Fields check box and then click OK.

Re: All fields are not Updated in MS Word

If you are using the Microsoft Office Word 2007, then for updating you will have to do the following steps :
  1. Click the Microsoft Office Button and then click Word Options.
  2. Click Show.
  3. Click the Update Fields check box before printing, and then click OK.
Word always updates some fields automatically when a document is printed or made the preliminary hearing, even if it is off the Update Fields option.

Re: All fields are not Updated in MS Word

The fields are used as placeholders for data that might change in a document and create form letters and labels in mail merge documents. Some of the most common fields are PAGE, which is inserted to add page numbers, and DATE, which is inserted when you click the date and time on the Insert menu and then select the Update automatically check box. Fields are inserted automatically when creating an index or table of contents using the Index and Tables command on the Insert menu. You can also use fields to automatically insert document information (as the author or file name) to perform calculations, to create links and references to other documents or materials and performing other special tasks.

Re: All fields are not Updated in MS Word

Field codes appear in brackets or braces ({}). To display the results of the field codes (as the results of calculations), hide the field codes (click Options on the Tools menu, click the View tab and then clear the check box field codes) . The fields are similar to formulas in Microsoft Excel, the field code is like the formula and the result of the field as the value generated by formula. The following fields are automatically updated :
  • AUTONUM
  • AUTONUMLGL
  • AUTONUMOUT
The following fields are updated when you print or preview the document :
  • DATE
  • WEATHER
  • PAGE
  • PAGEREF
