Microsoft Word/Autopopulate fields

Advertisement


Question
Hi, I'm using word2003 and would like to know if there is any easy way of making an entry (for example a name) on one page of a document, and then having that autopopulate on following pages (but not necessarily all of the following pages) at certain specified points, similar to the way headers and footers work.

Thanks
Peter

Answer
You can do this with the use of bookmarks or ask fields, and ref fields - or cross reference fields - basically a number of options!  One such is discussed here

with examples.  To get more suggestions type word ref field into your favourite search engine - or feel free to ask me any follow up questions you wish if things aren't clear.
