Default Insert "must complete" text field


Any help much appreciated!

I am trying to create a contract template for regular use with Office for Mac 2008.

The contract stays standard but there are a number of fields which will change each time e.g. "Client name", "contract start date", "contract value" etc.

Is there a way that I can insert a field which requires / prompts me to change these values. Currently I am using XXXX's and using find and replace, however, a more solid system would be preferable.

N.b. the data for these fields does not come from anywhere else in the document i.e. I don't see a way to use AutoText or the standardised fields.

Basically, just looking for a way to go into the document and quickly jump to those fields which are titled but require editing.

Again, any help much appreciated.

Many thanks,
