I have a Word 2010 document with a chart with two columns and many rows.

I would like to fill in the second column automatically with boilerplate text based on a keyword in the first column.

If this can't be done in Word, can it be done in Excel?

Anyone know how to do this?

Yes it can be done in Word using a macro - the macro would look in the table and process each cell.  What exactly would you like to achive?

Example of macro structure might be something like this:
Sub ProcessTable()
dim oCell as Cell

For each oCell in ActiveDocument.Tables(1).Columns(1)
'Read cell 1
'Write to cell next to cell 1
Next oCell

End Sub

Open in new window


Pls upload a sample document.
