Hi,

Is this a known Word 2007 bug? When a linked (child) document has content
controls locked to avoid deletion, if you modify the contents from a parent
document (which has an {INCLUDETEXT} field pointing to the child document)
and call an UpdateSource command (Ctrl+Shift+F7) the source document is not
updated.

Procedure:
1. Create a new document "child.docx"
2. Include some text and a Content Control
3. In "Content Control Properties", check the box: "Content control cannot
be deleted"
4. Save child.docx
5. Create a new document "parent.docx"
6. Create a field {INCLUDETEXT "child.docx"} and update its contents
7. Modify the text inside the content control, and press CTRL+SHIFT+F7 to
UpdateSource. The child document is not modified.

Regards,
Pedro

I can certainly reproduce the issue you are describing. I don't know if it's
a known bug, but I'll post back if/when I have more information.

Thanks for your reply!

Maybe is it be better to report suspected bugs to another group, also? I
have several more ones, related to content controls and templates...

Hi Pedro,

Content Controls (Structured Document Tags/SDTs) are stored in and handled somewhat differently within the Word 2007 document
structure than regular 'text'.

If the issues are from using the user interface of Word 2007 then posting them here is fine, with the steps to reproduce being
helpful.

If the issue relates more to behavior from automation/programming, you may want to use the Word Programming discussion group through
the link below.

By the way, each of your messages is appearing 3 times :)
