If you want to insert a dynamic field code manually in Microsoft Word, you can follow these steps below:

1. Go to the location where you want to insert the dynamic field. For example, go to beginning of the document to insert {TOC} for table of content; or go to the footer to insert {PAGE} for page number.

2. Press Alt-F9 to view field code.

3. Press Ctrl-F9 to insert an empty field. You see { } showing up.
