Update content controls data when changing the source XML file

Dear all,

I bound several content controls in a Word 2010 document with a XML with data file using "Word 2007 Content Control Toolkit".

My problem is that if I modified the data in the XML and save it in the same place with the same name, when I open the bound Word document, the content controls show the data of the previous XML and don't take the new values from the XML file.

Maybe I misunderstood it but, as far as I read in the documentation of this utility, "Once a Content Control is mapped it can be considered data bound such that changing the data in the store will reflect the changes to the surface, and visa versa".

Could anybody please help me to solve this issue.

Thanks in advance

Hi rioreal2 - I have been scouring the web for the solution to your problem with absolutely no luck! We are the only 2 on the planet who need to clear previous leftover data in our content controls!?!
Did you ever resolve this? If so please advise how as I am becoming obsessed about this now.
All the best.
