    I have created a MSWord Template, using MS Office Word 2003. I have established header and footer. In the footer, using "auto text", want to create the "filename". Once the header/footer info is set up, I save the template to be used later, However, when I open the template, the "Document1" or whatever the document number is, appears in the footer as the filename. I have tried to save the document with the name I want, but it remains as "Document1" (or whatever). It doesn't capture the filename on save.

    What do I need to do?

    Thanks.

    Does it update after you do a print preview? The following are methods of updating fields:
    • Ctrl+A, then F9
    • Print Preview
    • Print

    Interesting. If I save and close, it retains the "Document2" id. I open it and there is the "Document2", but if I do the Print Preview as you suggest, it has the file name.. It also prints with the file name and changes the document footer.

    So, reckon we can mark this one closed. I just have to remember to do the Print Preview and/or know that it will correct when I print the document.

    Thank you very much.
