Updating fields in ms word

This means that, should you need to move the files as a group to another folder (eg putting them on a CD or USB stick for portability), all the links will break. Note: The reason for the 'INCLUDEPICTURE "' copying & cutting is to avoid updating other kinds of links.

The journalists in question were The ’s Jonathan Capehart and CNN’s Kate Bolduan, and while both managed not to whiff as badly as their colleagues earlier in the week, CK still won with relative ease.
