You can switch between displaying field codes and results in your document by pressing ALT F9.

I have a form on a template that I use quite often, and this template has both text boxes and fields.

If you are referring to a Text Form Field (the kind inserted by using the Forms toolbar), then I must ask: what exactly were you trying to accomplish by updating the fields?

what information changes that creates a need to update the content of all fields?

You can also manually insert fields to automate aspects of your document, such as merging data from a data source or performing calculations.

In current and recent versions of Word there’s little need to insert fields manually, because built-in commands and content controls provide most of the capabilities that fields provided for earlier versions.

Fields in Word are used as placeholders for data that might change in a document and for creating form letters and labels in mail merge documents.

Word inserts fields automatically when you use particular commands, such as when you insert a page number, when you insert a document building block such as a cover page, or when you create a table of contents.

Also, when you say "text box," are you referring to the text box that is created by going to the "Insert" drop down menu and choosing "Text Box?

" or are you referring to a Text Form Field, that is essentially a "blank" for filling in text into the form?

I can update the fields quite easily by selecting them, one at a time and hitting F9.
