    You can repeat text elsewhere in a document by bookmarking a field. Then you use a REF field, which has the syntax:

    {REF BookmarkName}

    wherever you want that text to appear. However, using a {MacroButton nomacro} field alone will not work. First, it doesn't have a bookmark name & when you select it & type, the field is destroyed. You could use it & have a space before & after the field. Then select everything from the space before to the space after the field & choose Insert/Bookmark. Give the bookmark a name & then use that name in the REF fields.

    Hope this helps.

    Phil,

    >You could use [your current setup] & have a space before & after the field. Then select everything from the space before to the space after the field & choose Insert/Bookmark. Give the bookmark a name & then use that name in the REF fields.

    It didn't work; the REF field didn't replicate the other field...

    Thanks,

    A REF field will duplicate the information that is contained in a bookmark. What do you get when you use the REF field? You are entering the REF field by pressing Ctrl+F9, aren't you?

    Take a look at the attached document. You can use Alt+F9 to see the field codes.
