    Word 2000 Update Entire TOC When Print (Word 2000 (9.0.4402 SR-1))

    I am using Word 2000 (9.0.4402 SR-1).
    When I send a document to print - which contains a Table of Contents - AND the update field code setting is turned on for printing... Word will update the page numbers but not the entire table. (I do not get the update toc prompt - it just updates the page numbers). SO if changes were made to headings within the document - they do not get updated when I send the document to print (only the page numbers). This means that I must click into the table of contents and press F9 to get the prompt and update the entire table.
    We just recently noticed this problem; however, it has worked fine in the past. I do not believe we have had any recent upgrades to Word that may have caused this problem.
    Has anyone else experienced this problem?

    Is this now happening to all documents, or just to a particular document? - if the latter, perhaps deleting the existing TOC and recreating it might help?

    Hi Gary
    Thank you for your reply. It is actually happening on all documents. I thought at first that the TOC wasn't updating at all; however, I noticed that the page numbers were updating when I sent a document to print - so something is updating. I read somewhere on the Microsoft site that the "default" in Word is to update page numbers; however, I am sure that when sending a document to print which contains a TOC I used to get the Update TOC dialog box appearing - then I would just select Update Entire Table - and it would be fine. Something has changed on our system - because it is affecting myself and other users. Very strange.

    Check under Tools/Options/Print tab. If Update fields is not checked, then only the page numbers will update (because printing repaginates the document). If update fields is checked, then you will get the prompt.
    Cheers,

    Hi Phil
    Thank you for your reply. Yes we do have that turned on.
    Very Strange.

    Yes, it is strange. I wonder if your template is corrupted. If you print without using the macro, do you get the prompt? If so, then your macro may be the problem. If not, then I'd at least try Step 2 approach that was outlined in <post#=197827>post 197827</post#>. This might help eliminate causes. Post back & let us know.

    Mine prompts; I run Word 2000 patched up to SP2; Help > About reads 9.0.4402 SR-1, just like yours.

    Did you install the field code security patch? Just wondering if that could have any effect.

    Hi - just wanted to respond to this post - sorry I did not do earlier.
    I found out that the problem with the Table of Contents not getting updated at time of print is actually a problem with our Document Management System - iManage.
    Thanks for all your great suggestions.
