using context control to automatically change text

Jul 29, 2008 at 12:20 PM
Ok i am very new to this ... so excuse me if it is a silly question ...

Say in the cover sheet of my document i want to say something like "Proposal for :[insert company name here]" ... and i want to create a content control for that text "[insert company name here]" with the "title" set as "company_name"

somewhere further on in the document i want certain text fields (non-editable) to change automatically once the "[insert company name here]" is changed by the user on the cover sheet ...

Say text in the header of the document, which also shows "proposal for [insert compnay name here]" ... or as another example if the user chooses a certain author name from a drop down list, then that specific author's details like phone number and email address are automatically updated and shown in the document

How can i do this all this using content control etc??? ... i am totally new to this and searching for answers has resulted in nothing ...
