Update Field command is greyed out (Word 2010)
A user just sent me a document in which none of the fields will update--right-clicking a field displays the correct menu, but "Update field" is greyed out. I've attached a screen shot of the menu for a TOC field; the others are the same. I noticed that it's only the "manually-inserted fields." Thus, TOCs and cross-references won't update, but things like the table numbers in captions are updateable (see screen shot called "Table number.jpg").
None of the other methods work either, i.e. F9, switching to Print Preview, etc.
The document isn't protected or Read-Only. It had Track Changes enabled previously but I turned that off.
What the heck is going on?
Thanks in advance,

Chances are that the fields like this have been locked.
