    Convert Field Code to Text? (Word 2002/XP)

    Hi, all. I'm trying to find a way to convert Text Form Field field codes in a table into text. I thought this could be done in Word 97. Basically, I want a form where I fill in the field codes, convert them to text, then pass it along to another user to fill in the form. The data I'm filling in is numeric but not necessarily serial (e.g. first page may only have numbers 1-3, then following pages may have 4-9, 13-17, etc.) Any ideas or suggestions are greatly appreciated. Thanks from the newbie. Brent

    Select the text and Control-Shift-F9 will convert the fields to their current text value.

    Stuart,

    Thank you! I knew there was a trick to doing this. I tried all the Alt and Ctrl and Shift combos I could think of -- except your solution. Works perfectly.
