Default Multiple references to the same footnote ?

The sample update macro at http://www.gmayor.com/installing_macro.htm added
to a toolbar button is a simple way of updating the fields in a document.

Thank you for the instruction on how this feature works. We have used
wordprocessors that also provide a feature that will update or
refresh all the cross-references upon request by the user. For
example, the user can refresh all references in Corel Wordperfect by
selecting a menu option to 'generate' the cross references. In our
opinion, this is an extremely effective approach to making sure the
references are functioning correctly and displaying the proper
information.
Thanks,

Richard

Cross-references unfortunately don't update automatically but should
update when you print, switch to Print Preview, or update fields
generally.

Thank you, Suzanne, this appears to be exactly what we needed. However,
we cannot get the cross-reference numbers to update after
inserting a new footnote. We can right-click and update each one
independently, but how do we force all the cross-references to
update? Shouldn't this happen automatically and immediately by
default? Thanks,

Richard

How do we put multiple references in the body of the text to the
same footnote? For example, three superscript number "3" 's in
different paragraphs that all refer to the same footnote. We
also want all three footnote references in the body to be
re-numbered (updated) if another footnote is inserted before the
third footnote. Can this be done?

Thank you, Peter. You are very likely correct. As a new user, I am not
familiar with this feature. Where is it found in Word 2007?

Thanks,
Richard

Will "Update fields" not do that?
