How do I make a button in Word 2010 that will read certain bookmarks from the document, format those bookmarks into a line of text, then open up a popup form that allows the user to copy the text?

Word 2010

My intent is to allow a user to automatically generate a comment using information from a Word document. The reason is that for each Word document an employee works on they will need to make a comment regarding that document in a database. I'd like it to be a simple copy and paste action.

Thank you

I would create a custom toolbar with a custom toolbar button on it which is attached to a VBA procedure you create to search the current document and produce the dialog box.  Attach the toolbar either to normal.dot or to a custom template and then put the template in the add-ins folder (if it isn't normal) so you have the toolbar/code available for any document you open.

Is that enough of a starter?
