Run [Update Field] on opening word document RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello 

     

    Is it possible for the prompts created by 'FILLIN' fields to automatically run from .doc or .docx version of a word document, without recourse to macros or vb?

  • Hi Paddy,

    No. However, by setting the 'update fields before printing' option - see under Word Options|Display > Printing Options - (on each PC), you can ensure they fire before the document is printed.
