  • 5. UPC Font
    Hello! XP has all these fonts with names ending in UPC (i.e. LilyUPC) made by Unity Progress (I think). When I choose one of these fonts in MS Word and begin typing, it automatically reverts back to the previous font choice. What is the purpose of these fonts since they don't appear to work in MS Word? Thanks in advance!

1.quick parts with non-updating date field

I want to create a quick part containing the date when the quick part was 
inserted, but not have the date automatically update each time the document 
is opened.

I've tried this with the date field, but the field update status affects the 
quick part also.  If I create the quick part with the update toggle off, the 
quick part contains the date the quick part was created.  If I create it with 
the update toggle on, the date will be inserted with the update status on as 

I need the quick part to insert with the current date, but not have the date 
update automatically, without the user having to remember to toggle the 
update status off.

Any ideas?

2.Exporting table field names to Word/Excel (Just Field Names not da

Is there an easy way to do this?  I have several tables that I merge into one 
using a union query but they don't all have the same fields.  I need to have 
an easy way to identify the fields that don't appear in all the tables.  See 


This would be all I want to export not all of the actual contents within the 
table.  This seems like it would be a simple thing to do, but I just don't 
know how.

3.Field updates on print even though Update Fields not checked

past (just date, not createdate field).  Even though

4.Text field in text box does not update on Fields.Update( )


I have a german word 2003 document that contains some (auto-) text
fields that get filled via a program (using Word's ActiveX interface).
After all text fields are set I call Fields.Update( ) method. All
fields get updated except the address field. This field is in a text
frame (not sure about the exact Word terminus beause I'm using a
german word version, maybe it's called text box).

Once the document prints, it gets updated automatically. Or by
clicking the field and hitting F9. But at first the user thinks that
something went wrong because he just sees "R_Address" (the field name)
in the the text box.

Is there any way to update this field with VBA/macro, too?
