    Fields to Text (2000/2003)

    Is there a way...to quickly convert all field contents to text? For ease of entry, we want to use fields for input, but then the documents are uploaded to another system which doesn't recognize the fields. It seems I saw this problem addressed in the forum before, but alas, cannot search...

    Ctrl+Shift+F9 will replace all fields in the selected text with their result. You can press Ctrl+A, then Ctrl+Shift+F9 to do this for the entire body of the document. If you have fields in headers and footers, you will have to do them separately.

    Thanks, again, Hans, I knew there was a way to do this, but couldn't find it with a search of Help or the knowledge base using "convert fields to text."
