I don't know of any comprehensive and understandable reference to field in Word, but I found the link you cite using google.

Just to check, I went to Word (97, in fact), choose a random field via Insert>Field. That was autonumlgl (never heard of it, in fact).

There was an extensive information about the field in the Word help. Just search for autonumlgl in the index, and find it.
Then I searched on google with "ms word" autonumlgl. I found Microsoft help in, which seems part of a full and systematic on line reference manual.
And the excellent site with a LOTY of information (also related sites on other Office products).

And, finally, the book Microsoft Word 97 Field Guide, Microsoft Press 1997 by Stephen L. Nelson is still for sale on It might not contain the latest additions, but will provide you with a good basis on the subject. After that you should be able to find out everything new yourself with the Word help and google.

Hope this helps.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
