I have multiple word documents with fields in them that receive their fields content from a sql2008R2 server. tables are updated by A) selecting entire document (ctrl-A), B) pressing F9 to open a message box to input an ID number (to identify a specific person that the document pertains to) and then manually inputting the ID number into the message box and pressing "Ok" on the message box leading to updating of the multiple fields in the document.
I am seeking assistance regarding how to automate this task in vb.net. I have been able to select the entire document but not able to update the fields with the necessary ID. Fields.UpdateSource seems like it should work but not able to make it happen as of this moment.
Any assistance would be very much appreciated! Thanks.
