One New Thing: Word field codes.

I was asked a vague question about something involving fields and switches in Microsoft Word, and it turns out we were talking about using field codes. As this pdf I found on Understanding Word Field Codes explains, you can find pretty much nothing in the Word help files on using these things – especially if you’re new to using codes. Basically, you press ctrl-F9 where you want the code to be entered, then put your code (and switch/es) in ,and press F9 to display the current value. You can see an example of one if you open Word, Insert a Field such as Date and Time, then right-click over if and select Toggle Field Codes.
