Intermittent DOC ID Update Issue in Footer of Word 2010 documents

Hello Everyone.  I apologize if this has been addressed before, but I have not been able to find information on this particular issue.  Intermittently, several users have experienced opening an existing Word 2010 document from Desksite v. 8.5.2002.12 and finding that the DOC appearing in the footer is the same as another Word document that happens to also be open on the PC or even a recently opened document.  The DOC ID number in the title bar remains correct, but the footer takes on the incorrect DOC ID of another document.  Has anyone experienced this?  I have taken a look at the VBA code for the Footer function and cannot determine what, if anything, is awry in the code.  Does anyone have any ideas as to how I can resolve this issue?  Thanks so much for any assistance you can provide. -- Liane


The DOC ID footer codes we have in place are as follows:


Option Explicit
Option Compare Text

Public strAuthor As String ' the author of the document to foot
Public strName As String ' the name of the document to foot
Public strNumber As String ' the number of the document to foot
Public strVersion As String ' the version number of the document
Public strClient As String ' the client number
Public strMatter As String ' the matter number
Public objDocument As IManage.NRTDocument


Public Sub GetProfileInfo()
Debug.Print "GetProfileInfo"

Dim DocNumber As String
Dim DocName As String
Dim DocVer As String
Dim Author As String
Dim Client As String
Dim Mat As String
Dim ReturnStatus As Integer
Dim Aprop
Dim FileSpec As String

'Begin GetProfileInfo
On Error Resume Next
If ActiveDocument.Variables("Stamp").Value = "" Then
End If

strName = objDocument.GetAttributeByID(nrName)
strNumber = objDocument.GetAttributeByID(nrDocNum)
strVersion = objDocument.GetAttributeByID(nrVersion)
strAuthor = objDocument.GetAttributeByID(nrAuthor)
strClient = objDocument.GetAttributeByID(nrCustom1)
strMatter = objDocument.GetAttributeByID(nrCustom2)

' If ActiveDocument.Variables("Stamp").Value = "" Then
' FrmFileStamp.Show
' Else
For Each Aprop In ActiveDocument.CustomDocumentProperties
Select Case Aprop.Name
Case "DocNumber"
Case "DocVersion"

Case "DocMatter"
Case "DocAuthor"

End Select
