Default How to get "Track Changes" to ignore "Field Code Changed"?

Dear all,

Are there any way to get "Track Changes" in Word 2010 not to track "Field code changed"?



In "Track Changes Option", I can only un-check "Track formatting" but I cannot find any way to stop it tracking the "Field code changed"

Thanks!

No. However, you can use a macro to automatically accept all field updates:
Code:
Sub AcceptTrackedFields()
Application.ScreenUpdating = False
'This sub accepts any tracked changes instigated by Word affecting fields – not field code edits
Dim Story As Range, oFld As Field, oRev As Revision, Rng As Range
With ActiveDocument
  ' Loop through all range objects and accept tracked changes on fields
  For Each Story In .StoryRanges
    For Each oRev In Story.Revisions
      For Each oFld In oRev.Range.Fields
        oFld.ShowCodes = True
        Set Rng = oFld.Code
        With Rng
          .MoveEndUntil cset:=Chr(21), Count:=wdForward
          .MoveEndUntil cset:=Chr(19), Count:=wdBackward
          .End = .End + 1
          .Start = .Start - 1
          oFld.ShowCodes = False
          .Revisions.AcceptAll
        End With
      Next
    Next
  Next
End With
Set Rng = Nothing
Application.ScreenUpdating = True
End Sub
