References betweeen multiple word files - INCLUDETEXT help!
I'm having some incredibly frustrating problems with the INCLUDETEXT command - here is what I want to accomplish.

CREDITS folder. This folder contaings about 15 SUBFOLDERS each with their own word document. All of these documents are to share the same 'Project Name,' 'Project Location,' etc.

I want to be able to enter the Project Location, Project Name, etc, once and have this update in all of the files. To do so I have created a seperate Project_Info.doc in the main CREDITS folder and have entered placeholder words and made them referencable, functioning bookmarks.

The folders look like this

T:\CREDITS\SUBFOLDER 1
SUBFOLDER 2
SUBFOLDER 3
...
SUBFOLDER 15
Project_Info.doc

The CREDITS folder is going to be copied and pasted into various project folders, updating the Project Name and Location each time (such as P:\CREDITS or P:\BUILDING\CREDITS)

When I use the following include text command

{INCLUDETEXT "\"T:\\LEED [Folder Structure]\\Credits+Submittal\\Project_Info.doc\""}


the entire file is included followed by a carriage return which I do not want. When I reference the fully functioning bookmark as follows:

{INCLUDETEXT "\"T:\\LEED [Folder Structure]\\Credits+Submittal\\Project_Info.doc\" ProjName"}

I get an "Error! Not a valid filename" message. Furthermore, if I reference with links from the server (say on the T:\ drive) when I copy and paste the folder into a new project on, say, the P:\ drive, the links will break.

There has to be a way for this to work. Solutions?
