I have a template document that includes several advanced custom properties that I am trying to insert. I'm sure this is a very simple process, I just can't find it anywhere.  I have created the custom properties, I just can't insert them into the body of my document.  Assistance appreciated.

    You have to insert a field. (In Word 2007, click Quick Parts in the Insert group, and then click Field.)
    your custom property can be found in category documentinformation under section docproperty
