To view the Properties dialog box, click the File tab, click Info, click Properties (under the document preview on the right side), and then click Advanced Properties.


When you view the LastSavedBy field in your document, the syntax looks like this:


Note:  A field code tells the field what to show. Field results are what’s shown in the document after having evaluated the field code. To toggle between viewing the field code and the field code results, press Alt+F9.


If the last person who saved the document was A. Gabor, the text and field "Revised by { LASTSAVEDBY }" displays this result:

"Revised by A. Gabor"
