Updating fields word
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.
It doesn't do this just once but constantly during the 20s or so the update process takes (which seems unusually long to me).
So updating the link works, but only if you're willing to click the "activate Macros" button of a few dozen times.
I tried to automate updating all fields in a document from Word with VBA, but that has the same problem, it also brings up the Macros dialog constantly for half a minute. Close '## reset the previous value and Quit the Word Application Word Application. Update Links At Open = update Links ' Word Application.
Some years ago, MS did change the update of some fields that previously updated automatically in the body of the document, but not all.
For some working examples that do more than just replicate data, see: https:// https:// Thank you for your reply, as it happens I did find that page via google prior to asking and couldn't get it to work, I have tried again still without sucess so I guess I must be doing something wrong.
I attach a test document with the fields in but not working, any help would be much appreciated.
Inserting document properties seems to do this just fine but I can't modify the names of each property.
Is there a way to create custom fileds such as this?
