Updating fields word
Making them all a field will mean that the assistant will have to retype the same word at least 23 times in a will.
(That’s just making more work for her.) Is there a way to autopopulate a field?
Notice, too, that because we opted to make the Bookmarks visible, it becomes obvious where to do data entry the next time we want to use the form to make a new document.
Just keep it between the grey Bookmark brackets shown above, and everything will be fine.
So I settled on Microsoft Word’s Bookmarks feature.
The good news here is you don’t have to be a propeller-head to pull this off.
so we repeat the Cross-reference steps three more times: We could do the same with “wife/husband,” “he/she,” “him/her,” “son[s]/daughter[s]/children,” etc., but you get the idea, right?
I’ve read something about making each field an REF field, but I don’t understand how to do it, and I’ve tried tons of Google search results.When you create a table of contents, Word takes the entries from the document headings.The entries and page numbers are inserted automatically as fields.I did that so the name will appear in Title Case within the document.) Then, we’ll go up to the title and select the text with our mouse or keyboard: We’re going to make this text the Bookmark. and we’ll get a dialog box that looks like this: As you can see, we’ve named this Bookmark “Testator” (makes sense, huh? To keep from having to type “John Doe” four more times, we’ll put a Cross-reference in the other four places that will pull that name from the Bookmark we created.
