Word doesn't treat cross-references like equations in Excel: the program won't update them in real time, causing references that move to display incorrectly.To update all the references in a file, select the whole document and use the Update Field option.
I just want to have a single macro that finds everything.) My attempt so far doesn't update fields in text boxes inside figures.
I'm pretty sure it didn't in Word 2007 but I no longer have it to test.
(In theory updating fields can cause other fields to need updating, e.g.
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).
I’d like it to work similar to Adobe [Acrobat], where if you give the fields the same name, the text in one will automatically fill up in all of the others.
I’ve read something about making each field an REF field, but I don’t understand how to do it, and I’ve tried tons of Google search results.Update a cross-reference from one page to another Use this procedure if you move the item that you're cross-referencing from one page to another.For example, if you have a cross reference to a table and then move the table to another page, you must update the cross reference. (If it works in other versions, all the better; I originally had this problem with Word 2007, and nothing seems to have changed since then.) This includes cross-references, page numbers, tables of contents, indexes, headers, etc. If it can be updated by pressing , I want it updated. Say, a will or a power of attorney or something similar?
