Updating fields in ms word tribal wars points not updating

It came after all the _Ref links (internal cross-references in the document) and before the bookmarks/fields that we use for the document properties, which meant it was very likely at the very end of the document (it was the only chart in the final appendix).I'll cover the basic methods for inserting fields into your document and some advanced VBA methods for updating and working with field code.Note: This tips page, illustrations and examples were developed using Word 2003.In fact, it's ok if I have to run the macro two or three times before it stabilizes. We do this first so that they contain all necessary '' entries and so extend to their final number of pages. I just want to have a single macro that finds everything.) My attempt so far doesn't update fields in text boxes inside figures.

Word doesn't do that by default, but you can create a macro that does.Launch the Visual Basic Editor and open the project that corresponds to your document. I had a client’s Word 2007 document to work on and the fields took FOREVER to update.In fact, I wasn’t even sure if they *did* update as I killed Word after an hour and a half of watching the ‘spinning wheel of death’…a longer table of contents changes some page numbers in the main text. This includes updates of page numbers in '' tables (but would not add or remove entries). Taking care of the common cases is good enough for me. Sub Update All Fields In(doc As Document) '' Update tables. Update Next toc Dim tof As Table Of Figures For Each tof In doc. When you're working with fields, it's common to need to update all of a document's fields at one time.One way to do this is to select the entire document and press F9.
