Subject:Need Help with Word From:SANDRA_DEQUESADA -at- udlp -dot- com To:"TECHWR-L" <techwr-l -at- lists -dot- raycomm -dot- com> Date:Thu, 18 Oct 2001 08:29:43 -0500
I'm currently editing several documents, all in Word. For one document, after
the peer review, the moderator opted to correct all the errors and enter all the
revisions. When I received it to ensure the formatting and page numbers were
correct, as well as replace the T of C and lists of tables and figures with the
updated one, a dialog box displays upon opening the document and before
printing. It is the Update Table of Figures dialog box that says "Word is
updating the table of figures. Select one of the following options:", and then
gives two choices - update page numbers or update entire table. I can select OK
I don't know where this dialog box came from. I can't find anything in Word Help
about it. I do not have "update automatic links at open", "update links", or
update fields" selected on the tabs from Tools > Options. I can't get rid of it
and need help.
Can anyone tell me, most importantly, how to get rid of this annoyance? I'm also
curious about where it came from and what its purpose is.
