Greetings Everyone, 

 

Need your assistance and expertise please.  I'm creating a form using Word 2016 and inserting a text field and date field on the top of each page. The text field is basically the contract number or order number. The date field is when the order was submitted. 

 

I would like Word to automatically populate the text and date field located on the other pages with the same data the user enters on the 1st page of the form.  How do I go about doing so? 

 

Thank you in advance for your assistance!

@R3d3mpt10n  If you only need those two fields to repeat, repurpose two of the document properties in the Insert > Quick Parts > Document Properties list. This is described in detail in section 7 of https://gregmaxey.com/word_tip_pages/repeating_data.html . 

@Jay Freedman  - perfect!  Thank you so much for your assistance.
