Please see my scenario - WORD HELP

by hospry / February 27, 2008 3:13 AM PST

I have a document that I need to change titles in everyweek. Is there a way to make this process automated? See example below

Permanent text here
Permanent text here
Permanent text here
AAA
AAA
Permanent text here
AAA
Permanent text here

So for example, the permanent text stays the same every week, but I will need to add 1 of the following titles inside this document every week:

Replace AAA with:

New Text BBB
New Text CCC
New Text DDD

Is there a way to assign alt + shift + = to have New Text BBB always appear? I really don't know, but I am sure there is a way to make this more effecient. There is approxiately 32 pages I need to go through and change every week.

Thanks.

You can record a macro and assign it a keystroke then use Find and Replace to make the change.

Just make 4 different documents
by ChuckT / February 27, 2008 7:29 AM PST

Since all the "Permanent text" remains the same, and even the AAA, BBB etc text remains the same per that week, just make four separate documents.

If you had four documents, DocA, DocB, DocC and DocD, you just use whichever one that suits your fancy for that week.

The Samsung RF23M8090SG

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
