Default Insert table in document - automatically updates second table in summary?

I am working on a maintenance manual for some equipment we manufacture.
I would like to make some lubrication tables within each section of the manual for different elements, and have a copy of each table in a summary at the end of the document. The summary tables would be driven/linked to the primary tables in the body of the document, and would not require manual update to match the original.

In simple terms I want copies of information in a document, to be inserted in another part of the document.



Is this possible, and if so, how?
Thanks.

Hi Mechaninc,

You can apply a bookmark to each table (Insert|Bookmark) then, wherever you want a replica of the table to appear, insert a cross-reference to the bookmark (Insert|CrossReference).

After updating the main tables, a simple Print Preview should be enough to get the others to refresh.
