MS Word 2013 Document Question

I have a MS Word 2013 document that was created by someone else.  On the document when you click on a link it prompts you to choose between two values in a list.  When you choose one of the values the information at the bottom of the page is then displayed and its content changes depending on which value you selected.

I'm trying to change the information which is displayed below but I'm not quite sure how to get it to display so I can change it.   If I change the information displayed after clicking the link then that's all that displays next time I open the form.

Any thoughts .....

Not sure I'm understanding this correctly.  Are you wanting to change what gets put at the bottom of the page automatically?  If so, then you'd likely have to look at the macro that is used to generate the text.

Can you post the document here?

It is proabably, but not certainly, a Macrobutton Field. If it is, you can see the field code using the Alt+F9 toggle.

It might look like this:
Display Text

Open in new window


and like this when the field code is visible
{ MACROBUTTON  HelloMacro Display Text }

Open in new window


Here is a simple macro to append text at the end of the document
Sub HelloMacro()
    ActiveDocument.Bookmarks("\EndOfDoc").Range.Text = "Hello to you"
End Sub

Open in new window

To see the macro, you will have to open the VBA IDE (Alt+F11) . Hopefully the macro will be in the document's template or the Normal template. There is a chance that it is in a global template which you would have to open specifically in order to edit the macro.

Here is the document I'm working with ......  Maybe this will help   You'll need to change the extension back to docm as it wouldn't let me upload it with it .....

Go into Design Mode and look at clsSignature.  Within that you'll find Sub Insert.  I believe that is where you are getting the signatures.  I've not sorted through all of that code but this is where I think you need to look.

@ CompProbSolv,

Didn't find anything there .....        

Here is what is being called when the macro button is clicked .... maybe this will provide insight ..

+++++++++++++
Sub HideTable()
SelectFromList
Dim sSelected As String
sSelected = ApplicationGet("txtSelection")
If Left(sSelected, 5) = "Media" Then
    ActiveDocument.Bookmarks("tblMedial").Range.Font.Hidden = False
    ActiveDocument.Bookmarks("tblFacet").Range.Font.Hidden = True
Else
    ActiveDocument.Bookmarks("tblMedial").Range.Font.Hidden = True
    ActiveDocument.Bookmarks("tblFacet").Range.Font.Hidden = False
End If
   


End Sub
+++++++++++++

@ All,

Problem solved !!!     When I go into designmode the two hidden tables are displayed thus allowing me to change the data in them .......  

Thanks for everyone's help ....

I'm not seeing the macro button.

Note the comment in Sub Insert:
'insert the signature elements.

That sure looks like where the signature is inserted.

@ CompProbSolv,

At the top of the form next to " PAIN DIARY" , is " Select Injection Type " ,  this is the macro button ..

The VB code is a bit confusing as its a complete set of coding that can be used on many different types of forms developed by this company for us.  This form is fairly simple and doesn't use most of it.

Input from both users guided me in places to look for the solution.  The form was ultimately designed in a different way with macros and hidden tables.  Without the help of both users I struggled knowing exactly how the form was designed .......
