? 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}

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


You should be able to insert the bookmark manually in the usual way. You will have to select the whole of the formula field - the REF field will only pick up what is in the bookmark.

With field codes (Alt+F9) and bookmarks (Options>Advanced>Show document content > Show bookmarks) visible it should look something like this:
[{ = { MERGEFIELD RatePerDay } / 31}]

and the location where the result is used would be like this.
{ = { MERGEFIELD Resident_Rent_Days } * {REF RatePerDay } }
