Updating bookmarks in word 2016

However, the field name REF becomes necessary if the name of your bookmark happens to be identical to the name of a Word field, such as Title.

Now, all that remains in your field code is the bookmark name, and that is all that is needed to display the bookmarked text anywhere in your document.

Just as you can use REF fields to repeat the content of a bookmark in multiple places in a document, you can use the INCLUDETEXT field to insert a bookmark with the text and graphics that it encloses from another document.

Inserting REF fields for bookmarked text is not the only way to repeat updatable text in multiple locations in a document.

You can also accomplish this using document properties and content controls (introduced in Word 2007).

When you create a cross-reference to a bookmark and select Page number in the Insert reference to drop-down list, Word creates a PAGEREF field containing the name of the bookmark.

Thus, you can easily change a cross-reference to a bookmark that shows the text enclosed by it to a cross-reference to the number of the page on which the same bookmark is located by placing your cursor within the cross-reference, pressing Shift F9, changing the field name from REF to PAGEREF, and pressing F9.

To see this, with your cursor still inside the field code, press F9 to update the information stored by Word and display the field code result, and then type some more text that includes the bookmark name in the place where you want the bookmarked text to appear, as in the following example.

Today I bought a new keyboard, because my old Product Name stopped working properly.

Finally, with your cursor still inside the new field code, press F9 to update the information stored by Word and display the field code result.
