    help/brain storming (All)

    Hi

    I need a bit of advice as to how I go about doing this. I have a template with last section containing company office address details (2 pages; first blank, 2nd with addresses). The users enter information as needed in all sections except the last section. The problem is that the addressing information keeps changing on a regular basis & therefore, I need to update & issue the templates so often (also in several countries). Current layout:
    section 1 (document titles etc)
    section 2 (change history etc)
    secion 3 (TOC)
    section 4 to n-1 (user content)
    section n (company addressing information - 2 pages in total)

    What I am looking for is: could the addressing infomation (or last section) be defined separately from the actual document? If stored separately, can I bring in the addressing information when the document is printed or PDFed? If the addessing information is held separately, then all I would need to do is update it as and when required - no changes to the actual template.

    So, in summary, the addressing section/information is to be held separately from the main document and printed/PDFed with the document. It is not to be saved with the document.

    Your thoughts as how to achive this or perhaps doing it some other way and achive the same results highly appreciated. Perhaps, what I am suggesting may not be possible; in that case any other ideas welcome.

    Thanks.

    You can do the following:
    - Create a two-page document with the company info.
    - In your template, delete the last two pages (but not the section break).
    - Select Insert | File...
    - Point to the two-page document.
    - Click the little dropdown arrow to the right of the Insert button.
    - Select "Insert as Link".
    This inserts the document as an INCLUDETEXT field.

    Alternatively:
    - Create a two-page document with the company info.
    - Copy the contents of the document to the clipboard.
    - In your template, delete the last two pages (but not the section break).
    - Select Edit | Paste Special...
    - Select Paste Link, and click OK.
    This inserts the text of the document as a LINK field.
