Default Linked text Word 2003

Hi,

I'm using word 2002.

Here's the problem :



I have a word document that first page would be a sort of a coverpage with infos related to the document (i.e.: who wrote it, what version, etc...)

Then I would like that some of the infos on this coverpage would be reuse in the headers of the next pages.

So, to be clear, I would like, for example, put a version number on the cover page, and update automatically in the next pages. (just like Excel would update a cell referenced to another one).

Is it possible? (without using VBA if possible...)

Many thanx

I haven't done this myself, but I think what you'll need to do is include the info you want in the Properties of the document, and then insert the appropriate fields into the cover page and headers. For example, you'll fill in the Author in the document propoerties dialogue, and then insert the Author field where you want that to show up. You'll update the relevant info, therefore, in the Properties dialogue, and it will be automatically updated in the respective fields in the document.

Yeah, that could be an option...

But I would like it to be "user friendly", because I may not be the one to update that document and People may just try to change the infos on the cover page instead of the document properties...
