Can somebody explain what "Field code changed" means? I turned tracking on

in my document and saw this remark after performing several updates. In the

areas where this remark appears, I can't see any difference between the

current and original text or diagrams.

Thanks.

      Most of the dynamic content in a Word document (such as links and many embedded

      objects, Tocs, indexes, etc.) is maintained by field codes. When they're

      updated, you'll get this notation when change tracking is active. It doesn't

      matter whether the result still looks the same, it's been regenerated so there's

      been a change "under the covers". The nice thing about it is, if you don't like

      the update you can get the original back.
