    Word 2010 - Undefined bookmarks problem

    Recently I was using bookmarks in Word 2010 and using formulas to make calculations. I have several documents in which I have done this. Now the bookmarks in new and old documents are not calculating. It says that !Undefined bookmarks and then the bookmark name. I have uninstalled Word 2010 and reinstalled, repaired and tried everything I can think of and it no longer works. Any one have a solution?

    You can try to unlink the table of contents before merging to a new document. This converts the TOC field to actual text, and the table of contents can no longer be updated. If you want to update the table of contents, you must reinsert it.

    Follow these steps to unlink the table of contents:
    1. Place the insertion point within the table of contents.
    2. Press CTRL+SHIFT+F9 (Windows)

    When you are doing something in a copy of the original document then choose the table of the contents and then use Ctrl+Shift+F9 to convert it to ordinary text. After you have done this then copy and paste it and the issue will not happen since the page numbers are no longer linked to their original locations.

    The error occurs where the page number must be and it usually tells us that the Heading for that item is deleted. So, to solve this problem you have to go to that page of the document and then reinstate the missing header and change the style which is assigned to the text to something other that is appropriate. Hope that this helps you out.
