Document info fields in Word won't update when placed in document header-section RRS feed

  • Question

  • Dear all,

    I have a document library using 3 Content Types with metadata columns and a Word-template.

    The values of these metadata columns should be displayed within the Word-documents created from content type.

    So I've inserted document info fields into the Word-template to display them.

    But unfortunately the placeholders are not updated when opening the document again, after metadata values had been changed e.g. by using the edit-form within the list.

    From what I have seen so far, this only refers to document info fields resident in header or footer sections. 

    But this is where I need to place them.

    Does anybody know this issue and has an idea of how to fix it?

    Could VBA be of use here?

    Best regards,
