A

Dynamic Fields in Microsoft Word are used as placeholders for data that might change in a document and for creating form letters and labels in mail merge documents.

Dynamic Fields behave like formulas in Microsoft Excel: the field code is like the formula, and the field result is like the value that the formula produces. You can switch between displaying field codes and results in your document by pressing ALT+F9.

Here is an example of Dynamic Field that displays the current date in the default format:

{DATE} - displays the current date in the default format
{DATE \@ "yyyy-MM-dd"} - displays the current date in the given format
{STYLEREF "Title"} - Displays the text formatted with the "Title" style
{TITLE} - displays the value of the document "Title" property
