Angry How do I remove Field Code Change tracking?

I use word extensively to share documents and like to track changes for each version, accepting them once a version has been reviewed. But I've hit a problem with accepting Field Code Changes as no matter how I accept them the tracking comment reappears when I re-open the document. This only occurs where I have embedded objects, e.g. other documents, contained within my main document. All other tracking works. How can I get Word to accept these changes and not re-display them, when I have already accepted and saved the document?

Paul Epstein - Thanks for the link mate but I've tried this macro several times before posting my question and it doesn't work no mater how many times I run and re-run it.

Kindly learn how to spell my name correctly. Despite your assertions, the macro works as described. Evidently the changes you're referring to aren't in fields...

Apologies Paul. I am not a Word expert so can only go by what the application tells me and it clearly shows the markup as a 'Field Code Code'!

I would suggest sharing a document with the problem structure, clearly marked.
How to attach a screenshot or file in this forum.

Are you saying that Track Changes is turned ON in the document but you have accepted all changes before closing the file?

If re-opening the file makes the fields update (and show as tracked revisions) then perhaps you should visit your options and turn off the setting that updates fields automatically on opening.

Or leave the Revision Tracking turned off when you aren't making changes.
