    If I have a document in Word that has fields (Name, address etc.), every time I go to "Print", the fields act up like they need to be filled again), giving me the prompts for each field. Is there a way once the fields are filled in to have it not request fill-ins any longer? Like a bibliography, if it could be done while still keeping the fields "active" in case changes need to be made, that would surely be preferable.

    Regards,

    Is this a NEW file in 2010 or one from 2007 and earlier?

    Now running HP Pavilion a6528p, with Win7 64 Bit OS.

    It's a form I set up in 2007 -- but it did the same thing in 2007.

    Without knowing what kind of field codes you are using it's difficult to guess whether that behavior is by design or not. If it is a "fill in" field, they have worked that way since DOS versions of Word if I recall correctly. And if they behave the same in 2007 and 2010 you would get better assistance by asking this question in the Word Processing forum.

    The fields are fill-ins -- just asking for names, dates...stuff like that.

    You may be right that the WP forum might be a better place to ask...I just wasn't sure as the Office 2010 is beta, and I am not at all sure if this is a "new" feature, a quirk, something I did in my design (I am FAR from proficient)...so I figured I have to make that determination first, and move from there.

    If Word 2007 acted the same way you could post it as Word 2007 question. If you figure it out for Word 2007 it will probably work in 2010.
