We have a Word doc using {includetext } fields to pull in content (within bookmarks) from a number of files.
I created a macro to iterate through the main doc and perform UpdateSource on each of those includetext fields.
It runs, and pretends to do its job.

Unfortunately, the fields don't always update. Both the containing doc and the included docs are on a SharePoint site.
Any ideas?

Thanks
Jay

At least one article on MS Support suggests using the {link} field instead of includetext for informtion that's likely to change.

Anyone know of the pros and cons?

Thanks
Jay
