    Footer Title (2002)

    I created a pleading format for our office based on another office's document using Word 2002 (attached). For some reason, when I try to print any document containing this pleading format, I get a message "Enter Abbreviated Pleading Title for Footer." Another assistant in our office does not receive this message when she prints the same docs (She has Word 2000). Is this because of Word 2002? Or is it my printer settings? Any ideas out there? <img src=/S/brickwall.gif border=0 alt=brickwall width=25 height=15>

    I tried it with 3 pc's and 3 printers using Office 2002 (XP). None of the exhibited the strange behavior.

    There's a FILLIN field on the first line of the document (press Alt+F9) to see field codes. If the Update Fields checkbox is set on the Tools>Options>Print tab, then fields in the body are updated, and this should trigger the request. (The fields in the headers and footers are always updated at print time.)

    Re: Footer Title (2002)

    Hello. You wrote in that post: "The fields in the headers and footers are always updated at print time".
    This is what I'd like to have: when I do Ctrl-A and then F9, I would like ALL of the fields to update, even the fields in Headers and Footers. I don't want to print or do print preview to update the headers and footers fields.(Word 2003).
    Thank you for your answer.

    Re: Footer Title (2002)

    As far as I know, Ctrl+A (Edit>Select All) only reaches the currently viewed pane, whether it is the main document body, the header, the footer, etc. So I fear that your wish cannot be granted in its current form. But it probably is possible to write a macro to update all fields in the document and assign it to a toolbar button so that you could do it with a single click or keyboard combination.

    The macro code could look like this:

    <code>Sub UpdateAllFieldsEverywhere()
    Dim rng As Word.Range, intSec As Integer, hdr As HeaderFooter
    ' Update document body, footnotes/endnotes, comments,
    ' and headers and footers in section 1
    For Each rng In ActiveDocument.StoryRanges
    rng.Fields.Update
    Next rng
    If Not (rng Is Nothing) Then Set rng = Nothing
    With ActiveDocument.Sections
    If .Count = 1 Then Exit Sub
    ' Update headers and footers in other sections
    For intSec = 2 To .Count
    For Each hdr In .Item(intSec).Headers
    hdr.Range.Fields.Update
    Next
    For Each hdr In .Item(intSec).Footers
    hdr.Range.Fields.Update
    Next
    Next
    End With
    If Not (hdr Is Nothing) Then Set hdr = Nothing
    End Sub</code>

    Hope this helps.
