Huh? I use doc fields for everything, and they update just fine with either
a right-click and Update Field, or Ctrl+A (F9).
Also, do they update when you close / re-open?

My question is should I make use of Word 'fields' for things such as
document title, document version, document status (as specified by the
document properties dialogue) - or should authors simply enter text in the
correct areas, e.g., authors will overtype '<enter product name here>'?

The fields approach has benefits - however, I experimented with this today.
I inserted a field (doc version) in the body of the text and also in the
footer - the field is not updated when I select all (Ctrl-A) and update(F9).

What are your thoughts? Am I doing something wrong within Word or have I
overlooked some obvious features?
