Dear Forum members,

I need urgent help. As you can see from the forum posts, for two days time I have in trouble with Trados and Word. I am using Trados 2006 Freelance and XP together with Word 2003. However due to some Trados problems (you can see my other forum topic named "Previous request not yet finished"), now I am experiencing a new problem with Word.

All field files in my word documents are seen in raw field format and I can not see my table of contents, list of tables, list of figures etc. Instead of them I see some formatted texts in bracketts such as:

TOC \o "1-3" \h \z \u List of Figures

but no any list. The above format is between brackets.

How can I fix this? How can I see my fields on my document again? It seems that Trados makes something to my fields and I can not fix them and see the actual texts. How can I cancel these formats on my word file? By the way, not only on this file but also on other word documents all fields seem like this.

Urgent reply is highly appreciated.

In short, just select the contents of the entire document (Ctrl+A), then press F9 to update all fields.
If they still don't show their results, press Alt+F9 to toggle from code display to results display.
