Default Automatically Repeat Text in Footer

Is there a way to repeat the text in a field in the footer automatically (i.e. as you type it)?



I have a form where the user types a number in a text field and I would like this number to automatically repeat in the footer. I know it's possible to set up a bookmark and cross-reference, but I want to avoid having to manually update the field in the footer.

Thanks.

Yes, via a STYLEREF field. Simply apply a unique Style name to the range spanned by the 'field' then use a STYLEREF field in the footer to reference that Style.
