Preventing Field Results from Updating in Microsoft Word

Printing a Word Document correctly can be a hassle if you have fields that update automatically during printing. Fields are codes that instruct Microsoft Word to insert text, graphics, page numbers, and other information into a document automatically. For example, the { DATE } field inserts the current date and { FILENAME \p \* MERGEFORMAT } inserts the full file path into a document. To work around this issue, you can choose to lock certain fields:

  • To lock a field so that field results are not updated, click the field, and then press CTRL+F11.
  • To unlock a field so that field results can be updated, click the field, and then press CTRL+SHIFT+F11.
