Word fields not updating

Rated 4.86/5 based on 749 customer reviews

Each project directory has one of these source files.When Sheldon printed a document, all of the fields and links used to update automatically, as they should.Everything is working fine, except for updating the links in the Word documents.When trying to update a link in Word by right-clicking on it and selecting the "update link" option it brings up the Macro warning dialog for the spreadsheet, asking whether I want to activate Macros or not.As Sheldon assumes, the automatic updating should work, especially if you have Word configured as Sheldon does.However, this could be a particularly vexing problem to track down.First, try to determine if all the fields fail to automatically update.

A field is a set of codes that instructs Word to automatically insert material into a document.Chances are good that it is due to some partial or complete document corrupting.While that is easy enough to track down if you are working with a single document file, it is much more complex if you are working with hundreds of files.If they aren't, then it is likely that the problem is with the document containing the fields.If only some of them are not updated, then the likely problem is the file being referenced by the fields not being updated.
