Fields in Word document

  Gary Wood 16:56 04 Oct 2008

I have created a Word document which is a form to be fillied in by others, so it is locked and has form fields which users can type in.

On the first page, there's a field into which the user enters their name. I want this name to then appear at the bottom of every other page. I've done this by putting {BOOKMARK_NAME} in the footer.

This works, except that the footer doesn't automatically update when the main Name field is changed: you have to click Print Preview to force an update. Is there a way that I can set the field in the footer to always update after the main name field has changed, without having to resort to macro coding which might mean the document won't run properly on some people's computers?
