i have googled around and checked expert exchanges answers and probably tried out 50 different suggestions concerning a macro that updates all fields in a word document when the document is closed or opened. i also tried it with assigning a macro to a toolbar button, but no macro seems to be able to update all fields, e.g. the fields in the footer are never updates unless i F9 into it.
the only way to get it updated automatically is by going to print preview. I must be extremely stupid to not get this to work but i am getting frustrated as well :-) Does anybody have a word 2010 macro that does not skip any field at all, i can't be the only one that is finding half-working solutions on the internet
thanks in advance
PS if you ask me for examples i have tried i will end up copy and pasting all my search results, so if you want to know what i have tried Google for "update all fields macro word 2010" :-)
PPS macro security is temporary switched off so the macro definitely runs
