Microsoft Word 2016 Hebrew Language pack - Using Macro to insert merge field does not display Hebrew characters
Posted on 2016-08-17
Microsoft Word 2016 Hebrew Language pack - I am using a Macro to insert merge fields into a document, but it does not display Hebrew characters. Only after closing and saving the document and then reopening, will it prompt me for the language encoding, and upon selecting Hebrew, it displays the proper Hebrew characters.
I tried selecting in Word in the File menu, Options, Advanced, General, and checked the box "Confirm File Format Conversion on Open" but it does not solve the problem, when using the macro to insert the merge field.
How can I have the proper characters displayed in the first place, upon inserting the merge fields?
By the way, does anyone understand why must I confirm the file format conversion language if the system should know what language I am using being that I installed the Hebrew Language Pack?
