Field Object (Word)
Represents a field. The Field object is a member of the Fields collection. The Fields collection represents the fields in a selection, range, or document.
Use Fields(Index), where Index is the index number, to return a single Field object. The index number represents the position of the field in the selection, range, or document. The following example displays the field code and the result of the first field in the active document.
If ActiveDocument.Fields.Count >= 1 Then MsgBox "Code = " & ActiveDocument.Fields(1).Code & vbCr _ & "Result = " & ActiveDocument.Fields(1).Result & vbCr End If
Use the Add method to add a field to the Fields collection. The following example inserts a DATE field at the beginning of the selection and then displays the result.
Selection.Collapse Direction:=wdCollapseStart Set myField = ActiveDocument.Fields.Add(Range:=Selection.Range, _ Type:=wdFieldDate) MsgBox myField.Result
The wdFieldDate constant is part of the WdFieldType group of constants, which includes all the various field types.
