Help!  I am writing a simple program in Word Visual Basic and I need to copy a users response on the form to either a mergefield or a "REF" Bookmark in the Activedocument.

The logic behind this is simple but the syntax is driving me nuts and I feel like I'm about to smack someone.

Thanks!

I almost gave up.  Thanks for your help.  I'm now on the right track and can actually start writing this program.
