Fields in Word 2010
Creating, updating, locking and unlocking links
Automatic update of the embedded and linked objects is extremely powerful feature of Microsoft Word, but it could be boring for a large document. Locking a link prevents the object from being updated by the original application file, such as an Excel spreadsheet file.
Revealing document fields
