Repeated information in Mac Word 11

Please can someone help? I have a template document which contains an address on the front page. That same address is repeated in the footer on each of the following pages. Is there a way (in idiot speak!) that I can just enter the address on the front page and it will then pick up in all the footers? I've got various sections, but the footer is the same in all of them. Thanks in advance.

I'm confused.

Sounds like you now have the email address on all pages, so what do you mean by "pick up in all footers?" Do you want it only on the first page?

Hi. Sorry to confuse you! It's a survey template with a header and footer on every page except the first. OK so far. On the first page, the details include the address of the property. This address then appears in the header (not footer as I said before) on each of the following pages. The document is divided into sections and at the moment I have to keep typing the address into the header of the first page of each new section (hope you are still with me!). I'm basically lazy and wanted only to type the address on the front page and then for the rest of the document to pick it up automatically. (Really this template would be better off done in Illustrator or Photoshop but my client doesn't have these programs so it's got to be on Word). Thanks!

Does this help at all?

You should have an option for "link to previous" that should use the header (and/or footer from the previous section).

Thanks - I've got the headers linking together throughout the document. What I want to do is to link the address which appears in the main part of the text on the Front Page to the centre section of the header on the following pages.

Eg:

Front page says:

20 Feb 2013
Survey for
Mr & Mrs Bloggs
23 Anytown Street
Anytown


On the following pages it says:

Briggs & Co ( ) Page 1


I want it to say is:

Briggs & Co 23 Anytown Street Page 1

At the moment I have to type the address in the header of each new section (there are nine). I need a macro or something which will pick up the address on the front page and automatically insert it in the centre section of the header.

Any ideas?

Now I get it!

Since I presume this is the "matter" of the document, I suggest you do this.

File -> Properties -> Custom Tab -> Matter -> "23 Anytown Street"

Like so:

Then in the header use Insert -> Field -> DocProperty -> DOCPROPERTY "Matter"

Wow Thanks! Got this more or less working - but - each time the template is used the address changes. Will I need to change this in the first stage each time? Thanks ever so for your help.
