    drop down form with larger amounts of data (2002)

    hi there. i was just wondering if this is possible in word, and i cant seem to figure it out on my own.

    im using a document template where the first heading is the name and address info of a business and it varies between several business.
    at the moment i just have them all the info sequentially and each time i start a new document from that template i just delete all the
    headings other than the one that currently applies.... however i hoped i could streamline this process by having all the info
    in a form and selecting the business info that i want to show each time. however the regular drop down form only lets me insert
    a single sentence, whereas i need a larger chunk of text that is already formatted a certain way.

    is this possible?

    thanks

    I would recommend you look at an autotextlist.

    A good source of information about this is Bill Coan's - How to add pop-up lists to any Word document, so you can click your way through changes in seconds
