    User Address Field - Odd behaviour (Word 97)

    I have been using the field "UserAddress" in the footer of my documents. Each computer in an office has their own address inserted in the Tools/Options/User Information / Mailing Address. This way when the document is used across multiple locations the footer address is correct.

    I have recently discovered that if I put the same field in the body of the document the address does not change as above. I can ofcourse press F9 to update the field but there are many reasons not to do that. I would like it to be automatic like in the footer.

    Anyone got any ideas why this inconsistency happens?

    Some fields update automatically. Some update automatically in the header/footer. Others update at print time. See <!mskb=212054>Microsoft Knowledge Base Article 212054<!/mskb>.
    Cheers,
