Default One Content Control Checkbox checks another Content Control Checkbox

I have a form in Word 2013 that is 2 pages long and the basic information for the second page contains all the same basic information from the first page. The text fields are no problem and have copied over fine using bookmarks. However, there are 5 checkboxes that if checked on the first page, I need them to be checked on the second page. They are named as follows:

First Page Second Page
C1 C2

I find all sorts of code available to make checkboxes mutually exclusive, but that isn't what I need and unfortunately, I don't have enough coding knowledge to modify that code to work in the opposite.

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Your references to content controls, then to fields and bookmarks suggest you're using a mix of content controls and formfields; you shouldn't. Content controls and formfields were not designed to work together and you can cause problems when you do.

For repeating content control data, see 'Supporting repeating content' in:

You can map the content controls and cross reference them so they work as one when checked and unchecked. The content control version of makes this a simple task. If you want to explore what is possible with mapped content controls to a greater depth then Greg Maxey has a more sophisticated (but inevitably more complicated to get your head around) version which is linked from that page.

As for the content control/form field issue raised by Paul includes a tool to convert form fields to content controls.
