Thank you for taking a look at my question!

Everyday I type up letters, reports etc, and the same information is repeated throughout the document. How do I make W2003 use the first phrase I typed in the document in a particular place automatically?

E.g.

The front page of a report gives the client name, address, date of inspection etc etc.

In the header section I have to retype all this information again. Then in the report itself, I have retype the client's name, address, date of inspection etc etc. If I could get word to automatically update certain parts of the documents then I wouldn't have to retype the same information over and over.

I hope this explanation for help is clearer than the title and I am really looking forward to hearing from you!

You can try the "auto Correct" Dictionary. This will allow you to type an abbreviation and the word replace it with a longer version.
