I use Trados Studio 2015.
I got the following message when trying to save the target file

Error al guardar el contenido de destino. An error occurred while converting fields back to Microsoft Word format: Possible field(s) deletion.

It was a document in rtf format

Can anyone help me, please?
Thank you very much

Save the original RTF as a DOCX file and retranslate (the TM will certainly do most of the work). Most time this will solve your trouble.
Good luck

Enable tag verification (Project settings/Verification) and run a verification (Review/Verify). Make sure all tags related to fields are included in target segments.
