Word 2003 Default Save Name

I have a form field in a word 2003 template that is called Name and people type thier name in the field.  I assigned this field a bookmark called name.  How can I take this field and make it the default file name.  When you click save I want the default file name to be whatever was in the name field.

I know I need to use Macros and I am guessing I want to put the macro code in Save and Save As macros.
I dont know the proper coding, but this is an example of what I want.
When you click Save or Save As
Take whatever is in the name field (This is bookmarked as name)
name = whatver the persons name is
assign name to default file name

Open in new window

You need to use this macro. Note that the name is important
Sub FileSaveAS()
    With Dialogs(wdDialogFileSaveAs)
        .Name = ActiveDocument.FormFields("Name").Result
    End With
End Sub

Open in new window
