Since there are many included files and many TOC fields, I'd rather make sure the includetext fields get updated first.
Then I loop through and update each TOC completely.
Then, knowing that the doc has its final length and pagination, I loop back through and update each TOC, page numbers only.

When I get a few moments, I'll go through and have another look.
There has to be some way to know if a field updated or not, perhaps by looking at file date or such.

Last time I tested activedocument.fields.update it updated only the fields in the main text story. That should be sufficient for includetext fields.

If you want to update everything including headers and footers and footnotes and all that, use this. Tested in 2007 and 2010.

Sub UpdateAllFieldsEverywhere()
' updates fields in all stories, not just main text
'variable declaration
Dim story As Word.Range
For Each story In ActiveDocument.StoryRanges
story.Fields.Update
Next story
End Sub
