Default How do I get my bookmarked legacy form to generate in Word header

I am setting up a form and have set up several fields with references
throughout the document that will autofill once the user has filled in the
fields on the first page; however, the same fields will not autofill in the
page header that begins on page 2. Is there any way to do this? Once you
protect the document, the user is not able to access the header or I would
just make them edit it.

HELP!

Assuming that you are using Cross-reference fields, using Print Preview will
update such fields in the headers/footers of the document.

That can be done using a macro containing the commands

With ActiveDocument
.PrintPreview
.ClosePrintPreview
End With

The alternative is to use code to iterate through all of the headers and
footers in all of the Sections of the document and update the fields in the
range of each.

It is worth noting that Doug's macro can be called as the 'on exit' macro for the formfields which are cross-referenced in the
header.

Another option might be to apply a unique Style to the formfields in question and use a STYLEREF field to pick up the content
reflecting the field's Style.
