Field codes: RevNum field

The RevNum field inserts the number of document revisions, using information from the Statistics tab in the Properties dialog box. 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.

The revision number indicates the number of times a document has been saved.

Syntax

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

{ REVNUM }

Note:  A field code tells the field what to show. Field results are what’s 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.

Examples

To print information such as "Quality Control Measures, version: 12, printed 10/11/03. Changes approved by T. Gerrard." on each page of a document, insert the following text and fields in a header or footer:

{ TITLE }, version: { REVNUM }, printed { PRINTDATE }. { COMMENTS }
