    Field won't update (Word 2002)

    I have the following field in a template. When I create new documents from the template, the field doesn't update automatically. Is there a setting I need to change?
    The field in question is a date calculation field from a document found on this board.

    Not all fields are updated automatically, in particular fields in the body of the document. You could use a macro that runs automatically when a document based on the template is opened - see WD2000: How to Automatically Update Fields (it's valid for Word 2002 too).
