And this isn't quite true, either. I never have this option checked
because it makes me nuts to wait for it to update when I want to
print. I deliberately disabled it. STILLLLLLLLL..... page numbers and
date/time fields update when they print. Maybe I have just have a
weird copy of Office 95, but it happens every time. I just checked it
again to be sure... and checked to see that I have the option turned
OFF (i.e., no check mark).
