    track changes accept still displayed with tracking (WordXP SP3)

    On a document I have track changes turned on.

    We use a document managment system(DMS). In the footer there is a fieldcode that if the file is stored locally display the full path file name, otherwise if the document is within the DMS display the document number.

    {If {docproperty mDocID} = "" "{ FILENAME p }" "{docproperty mDocID *charFormat}" }

    With my track changes turned on it displays this fieldcode doc-id as having a track change even though there has been no changes.
    With trackchanges issues in the past the document is usually 'corrupt' therefore I run an Open and Repair.

    The fixes I have applied are:
    I have Opened and Repaired the doc.
    Accepted the track changes in the footer.
    Turn track changes off and then reinsert the footer doc id.

    All these fixes applied have been unsuccessul.

    I initially thought due to be a fieldcode, therefore each time I save, the fieldcodes are updated & saved, therefore being tracked. However I have other fieldcodes in my document and their not displaying as tracked ie page numbers and a TOC.

    any ideas

    Diana-

    Field codes in the footer are generally updated whenever you do something as simple as changing the view from Normal to Page Layout, and there's usually nothing you can do to stop it; it's part of pagination. Word's Page field doesn't do this, but fields referencing a document's property will.

    Field codes associated with the TOC aren't in the footer, so they are normally only updated on demand (or according to your Options settings, e.g. when it's printed.)

    Thankyou.

    I had a feeling that may have been the case ie when you change views. i noticed that when i accepted the track changes and hten moved to the next footer, the track changes were back on. I suggested to the user to type the footer in manually.

    Many thanks
