I'm working on a Word document that has a dropdown list and a plain text content control, I want the plain text to be filled based on the dropdown selection. I have the dropdown entries and plain text description in an Excel document. I have been able to successfully do this by assigning the description to the value of the dropdown entry, but the character limit is too small. Is there any way to implement this?
