Chapter 31. Working with Field Codes and... > Typing Field Codes Directly

Typing Field Codes Directly

If you know the name of the field you want to insert, you can enter it directly into your document by placing the insertion point where you want to insert the field, pressing Ctrl+F9, and typing the field name. Word inserts the field code directly at the insertion point.

Tip

Use Ctrl+F9 to insert braces

Although the curly braces surrounding the field code look like the regular braces you type from the keyboard, they’re actually special characters Word inserts when you press the keyboard shortcut for entering a field. Instead of typing the braces, press Ctrl+F9 to add the braces.
