    I used Microsoft Word 97 and oftentimes have to enter the same number at multiple points in the document. How can I enter the number just once and have WORD insert it automatically at the other points in the document?

    You could insert AutoText fields, then redefine the AutoText & recalc the whole doc. But unless I'm missing something, that seems a little OTT.

    Couldn't you just put a fairly unique string (eg: xyz) at the required points, then when you have your number do a find & replace (CTRL+H)?
