Visio 2010 - Text Box Contents

I have a text box on page 1 which I would like to have on page 3.  I would like to LINK the contents so that when I update page 1's text box, page will will also update.
HELP!  I don't see paste link!
Is there another solution?

I'm doing this "paste link" within the same VSD file but would like to know if it can also be done in OUTSIDE VSD files as well.

One possibility is to create the text you want as a Word document, then place it as an OLE object in Visio in the exact location over the text box, to appear as if it were the text box.

Uggggh  Scott.  Sincere apologies.  Your solution worked.  I was crazed this week and didn't refer back to that earlier posting.  My memory loss. or loss of sanity was the cause.  
Your earlier posting worked BEAUTIFULLY!!!!!  Thanks  Scott!
No problem... I'm right with you on the memory loss/questionable sanity issue!!
Tracking back to the first solution, do these depend on having Run in developer mode checked on the Advanced tab in Visio's options?
Or can it be done without that option checked?

Thanks!
