    Urgent help needed with includetext field (Word 2000 SR1)

    I'm in the middle of a two week project and having a crisis.
    I'm using includetext fields inserted programatically into a 'committee' summary document to include text for 'individual measure' summaries.
    The 'committee' document has many fields like this:
    { INCLUDETEXT f:data03summamryhousehb0514.doc}
    { INCLUDETEXT f:data03summamryhousehb0560.doc}
    { INCLUDETEXT f:data03summamryhousehb0738.doc}
    The application is designed to allow users to work either on the individual documents or to work on the 'committee' document and have the editing changes reflected in either document. The code I have to afield.UpdateSource on the close of the 'committee' document seems to be working fine...BUT I was horrified to discover that once the 'committee' document has been built, if another user modifies the 'individual' file, that the editing changes are not being reflected in the 'committee document' if it is later used.

    Several users are sharing the documents on a shared folder on our network.

    I'm stumped and under the gun. Any suggestions or comments would be appreciated.

    Thanks,
    Ann Brandon

    Does it help if you select the entire "committee" document and then update fields (Ctrl+A, then F9) ?
