If you click on an in-text citation or on your bibliography, the background will go grey, this indicates that code is present.

If you want to edit a reference that you have inserted into a Word document, make the changes to the reference in your Zotero Library.
Then, return to Word and click on the Refresh icon on the Zotero tab, he reference will be updated in Word.
