Field codes: Keywords field

The Keywords field inserts the contents of the Keywords box on the Summary tab in the Properties dialog box for the active document or template. To view the Properties dialog box, click the File tab, click Info, click Properties (below the document preview on the right side), and then click Advanced Properties.


When you view the Keywords field code in your document, the syntax looks like this:

{ KEYWORDS ["NewKeywords" ] }

Note   A field code tells the field what to show. Field results are what is shown in the document after having evaluated the field code. To toggle between viewing the field code and the field code results, press Alt+F9.



Optional text that replaces the current contents of the Keywords box in the Properties dialog box. The text can be no longer than 255 characters and must be enclosed in quotation marks.
