    Linked Text, surely a simple solution?

      Hello all,

       

      All I am trying to do is set up a situation in which one bit of text is then replicated all throughout the document where the linked text should be.

       

      So, for example, in a contract, I want to type into one area that the clients name is "Tim" and wherever a 'placeholder' is the text gets updated to reflect "Tim"

       

      For example:

      --------------------

      Client "Tim"

       

       

      This agreement is between tim and so on.

      Tim guarantees to sell me a rocket etc. Tim warrants that he will pay by 2020 etc.

      ---------------------

       

      Only updating the first "tim".

       

      I've searched and searched and read help files for hours. Driving me insane.

       

      Please, please, tell me how to manage this simple task?

       

      Yours sincerely

      Ed
