Default Move table cell contents from one table to another table or cell in same table

Word newbie...

Let's assume I have 2 tables on my Word document.



What I want is when I type text into a cell on the first table it puts the content of that cell into a specific cell in table #2 either at the same time or when I tab out of the cell? Possible? Any documentation or help would be appreciated. Thanks.

Default Microsoft Word Field Maths Tutorial...

I'm reading the document as it seems to be related to my question. When I highlight and right click a cell in a table in the document, Relative Referencing in Tables section, in the popup menu one of the options is Edit Field. When I right click the table in my test document that is not an option. What am I doing wrong?

There seems to be a problem with loading the web page. You might need to try again later.

The 'Relative Referencing in Tables' topic in the field maths tutorial has no particular relevance to your situation and the 'Edit field' option would only be applicable if you were actually using fields.
