Update Fields Before Printing

This option, found on the Print page of the Options dialog, forces Word to update all field-codes just before a document is printed or the print-preview is shown.

It is best to leave this option turned on unless you’ve a good reason to turn it off. That way, figure numbering and cross-references will be up-to-date when you print. If this option is off, you can update field-codes manually.
