In Word 2007 I want to put a few fields which when I fill them in will automatically update some other fields, which are related to the original field.

E.g. the first page contains
- Name of project
- Name of client
- Date of meeting

Then there is a lot of other text which should contain the same values of the previous mentioned items. Could someone provide me with a step by step on how to:
1. create the original field
2. create another field which automatically gets the same value

Cheers
CJ
