Yes, sorry - I would like to be able to insert a specific Field in a Word 2010 document that is 'dynamic' - by which I mean that if the document user updates the content of that Field, then all other instances of the same Field in the document, will be updated also. Thanks

Hi,

You can use a content control which is bookmarked and the use the REF field to repeat the text

Thank you - I've grasped the idea of this now ; Bookmark the text to use as the 'Primary Field', then the insert Cross-References that reference that Bookmark. Mostly, one has to right-click on the Cross-Reference and do an 'Update Field'.  Thanks a lot.
