    Creating a variable field (2002)

    Within a document template the same detail will appear in several locations. For example, the client name 'Mr Jones' appears several times throughout the document.
    What is the easiest way to allow users to enter this detail once and for it to appear at several locations of the document? I tried creating it once as a bookmark and Insert/ Field/ Formula to then refer to the bookmark name.. but this doesn't work? Thanks, Andy. N.B. this is not in relation to a Mail Merge, just specific documents based on the template.

    Instead of an = (Formula) field, insert a REF field. With field codes displayed, it looks like

    { REF NameOfBookmark }
