Change a Word field into static text


Field codes make it easy to update document information that’s subject to change. For instance, if you insert a Date field in your document, the field results display the current date each time you update the field. Sometimes, however, you may want to prevent a field’s results from being updated. For instance, you may reach a point where you no longer want the date displayed by your Date field to change.


One way to do so is to lock the field by selecting it and pressing [Ctrl][F11]. Locking a field preserves the field code but prevents the field results from being updated. You can then unlock the field by selecting it and pressing [Ctrl][Shift][F11]. However, what if you want to get rid of the field code without deleting the field’s results? This little-known technique is known as unlinking a field. To unlink a field, select the field and then press [Ctrl][Shift][F9]. As an alternative, press [Ctrl]6. Word unlinks the field by removing the field code and displaying the field’s results as static document text.

For a nice general overview of fields in Word, see here.

Word’s fields depend heavily on the F9 key. However, in Mac OS X, the system has commandeered the F9 key for Exposé. As a result, it can be a little annoying to deal with fields, and Word Help in Office 2004 only gives mouse commands, not keyboard shortcuts, for commands that would usually involve F9.
You can get around this. You can reset Exposé in System Preferences to use a different set of keys, hot corners, or mouse-click commands. Or you can dig the Word commands out of Tools>Customize (look under “All Commands”), and put them on a toolbar or assign a different keyboard shortcut. You can also access many commands by right-clicking or control-clicking on a field.
Note one difference between WinWord and MacWord: In MacWord, F9 updates all fields, including those in the header and footer. Although right-click Update Field (cmd-shift-option-U) appears to offer to only update one field, it updates them all. In WinWord, F9 only updates selected fields, or the field with the cursor in it, and will not update fields in the header/footer unless the cursor is there.
