? how to Assign a bookmark to a formula in Word

I have a couple of merge fields in a document, and I need to use them to create a formula field that gives me a certain result.  Then I want to use that result in another formula.

So how can I create a bookmark called RatePerDay that holds the value of a formula like {resident_current_rate / 31}.  I need this result in a bookmark so I can use for a formula like this.  {Resident_Rent_Days * Bookmark}

thanks

Hi,

You can use the SET Field Instruction to create a bookmark and then use it with the REF Field instruction
