Word footer not updating
Specifically, you'll need to use either an Auto Open or Auto Close macro, depending on whether you want to update the fields when the document opens or closes.The following is an example of an Auto Open macro you can use.Note that the macro makes sure that the options are set to force updating the fields and links when printing occurs, then it updates all the members of the Fields collection in the document.
When you delete a Section Break, you are, in effect, merging two Sections into one.It may be that the Section-specific settings in each of the two Sections differ, in which case Word has to make a decision about how to resolve the clash(es). When the Section Break is deleted all the settings effectively stored within it – Headers, Footers, Page Setup Details (orientation, margins, etc.), Page Borders, and Forms Protection – are also deleted, without so much as a ‘by your leave’.This leaves the Section before the break with no settings and Word, like nature, abhorring a vacuum, fills the gap with the only settings it has to hand, those of the Section following the Break.Field-codes are calculated values, a little like formulas in Excel.They can be used to automatically number figure captions, cross-reference tables and insert document properties, for example.
