    Hi everyone!

    I'm sure this is probably something very simple that I'm missing...

    I am creating a document template for a specific document type.

    I have two rich text controls added to a document via the developer tab.

    The first is the document's number in a series of documents to be created. The second is the actual document title.

    In the footer area, I want these to be shown in reverse - i.e. the document name, then the document's number, so I am making it very easy to check the number of the document when flicking through a physical folder.

    I tried to do this with bookmarks and cross-referencing, but the bookmarks are not saved when you create a new document based on that template.

    I tried with a macro, but after recording the macro, it didn't really do what I wanted.

    Is there an easy way to get this working? If not, is there a way I can assign names to the rich text controls in my template to run a macro more efficiently?
