I have the following Word Document with a table on a second page that defines various fields used within the document elsewhere?

I would like to have Word fill in Al Ames as the [Person] as one example.

I'm hoping to define a field.

How can I get Word to do that?

Thank you in advance.

David

I think Paul and I both recommended viable solutions - two different ways to approach the problem. Since David did not come back to comment and award points, I think points should be equally shared by Paul and myself.
