How to update text fields automatically when opening a file


This is accomplished through Model Properties, and with a configuration variable.

In MicroStation V8i, when the option Update Fields Automatically is turned on in the Model Properties dialog box, by default Model and File related fields update automatically when the model is opened.

In addition, the configuration variable MS_AUTO_UPDATE_FIELDS controls this behavior; specifically the variable controls the rules for updating fields in the active model. If set to ALWAYS, the fields always update. If set to NEVER, the fields never update. If not set or if set to FOLLOWMODELFLAG, the model's "Update Fields" flag is followed.
