Insert Custom Fields Codes in Word Document using DocumentBuilder.InsertField


I hope this is a simple solution.

I am trying to use documentBuilder.insertField() to insert a custom field code.

In word you can do ctrl F9 and you see {…} where I can add IM1 that gives me a {IM1} field code.

I need to does this but documentBuilder.insertField() is validating the fieldcose so documentBuilder.insertField(“COMMENTS”, “”) is fine but documentBuilder.insertField(“IM1”) causes an exception.

Any ideas please.
