Default Linking Text from one section to Appear in another Section

Hi all.



We have one main Executive Summary section right at the beginning in our reports which really a copy of small summaries of each section in the report.

I was wondering if there was a way to link the Executive Summary to all those separate smaller summaries. So that when I make a change to a small summary , it gets automatically updated in the Executive Summary section as well.

Thanks in advance!

Using the Document Property controls is quite simple. There is a limit to the number, though, and you may actually want to use them as document properties.


Mapped Content Controls are virtually unlimited and not that difficult if you use Graham Mayor's or Greg Maxey's free utilities.

Thanks again. It will take some time for me to understand all of this.
