    Auto Copy and Paste (Word 2003)

    First time poster to the Word forum.
    I'm trying to avoid having to find and insert the same info in multiple places in the doc. I'd like to only insert the info once, and have it appear in the other locations. It's for a template to be used repetitively, and this would avoid entry errors. I suspect a macro, but I'm only used to Excel macros, not Word (and not VBA) I've searched in the lounge and googled without success.
    Anyone have suggestions?

    If its a form, and you're using TextBoxes you can add the following code to the TextBox where the user is going to enter the data:
    sub TextBox1_Change()
    TextBox2.Text = TextBox1.Text
    TextBox3.Text = TextBox1.Text
    end sub
    Whenever the user typed in the first textbox, the other two would be populated with the same info.
