WordPipe Lite 7.4 Successfully Updates Headers and Footers

WordPipe Lite 7.4 does a great job replacing data in both Built-In and Custom Properties in headers and footers. The field values in the headers and footers update correctly, which has been a problem in versions before 7.4. If you have had problems getting WordPipe Lite to update the field values in...

Current Version of WordPipe Lite?

Is the current version of WordPipe Lite 7.4 or 8.0? WordPipe tries to update to v. 8, but fails.

Re: Replace old date with current date

Hi Simon, I had "Update field codes before save" checked and it did not update. Things just got really serious for me because I thought I had only 135 files to change, but I have 548 files! WordPipe is the only possible solution for me. If its alright with you, I'd like to combine this thread with m...

Re: Replace old date with current date

Hi Simon, I had chosen Custom Properties in Search Location and the new code changed the value of the Custom Property, EffectiveDate. However, the date shown in the footer did not change, in other words, the document didn't refresh. I had to press F9 to force the update. Can WordPipe force a field u...

Re: Replace a forward slash with hyphen

Hi Simon,

I don't know what you mean by "raw value". If you show the fields using Alt+F9, it looks like this:
{ DOCPROPERTY "Document number" \*MERGEFORMAT } / { DOCPROPERTY DocRevision \*MERGEFORMAT }

Is there a way for me to send you my docx?

Re: Replace old date with current date

Hi Simon, I did not try Wildcards. The date is in the Custom Property, "EffectiveDate". My goal is to find the current date and replace it with the current date. The entire footer looks like this: FSSQA-F102/5.2 Corrective Preventive Action Request Page 1 of 1 Approved: TFS Effective: 4/3/2008 Your ...

Re: Replace a forward slash with hyphen

Hi Simon, First, thanks for getting back to me. I did not try Wildcards. I didn't tell you that this part of the string "FSSQA-F102" is in the Built-in Property, "Document number" and the slash "/" is not in any Property and the "5.2" is in Custom Property, "DocRevision". So the result should be "-F...

Replace a forward slash with hyphen

Hello,
I need to replace a forward slash with a hyphen. An example of the string format is -F102/5.2 and I want to replace the slash with the hypen to produce -F102-5.2. I tried search for \-F*\/ and replace with \-F*\- but that did not work.
Thank you in advance.

Replace old date with current date

Hello,
How do I replace a date in a Word custom property with a new date, or better, the current date? Using a date format of mm/dd/yy.
I searched for *\/*\/* and wanted to replace with 01/21/13, but nothing was replaced.

Thank you.
