Word 2011 for Mac - cannot change Locale ID in field codes?

0 like 0 dislike

I want to change the locale of field codes like in this problem Change the language of fields in Microsoft Word

but I cannot manually alter the field codes. I type in the new code but nothing happens. Is this a permission issue? I am the administrator and only user of my PC.

Thanks in advance

Which types of field code? Different field types behave differently - some have an \\l switch for locale. Some need to be formatted with the appropriate language code (and even that may not be enough on Mac). For VBA for mass changes to CITATION fields, you should see http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/mac/forum/macoffice2011-macword/how-can-i-convince-word-to-use-english-instead-of/e0718ad9-03aa-4218-b318-e7a68d8eee5c (and you may need the code by Peter Jamieson)
