I work in education. We have a Word 2010 form in which you have to enter the student's name multiple times. Is there a way (preferably without a macro or visual basic) to enter the name in only one field, and have all other name fields read from that one entry.

Put REF fields pointing to the bookmark name of the Form Field at the repeat locations, and tick Calculate on exit in the Form Field properties.
