    I am looking to update the text in an existing form field/bookmark in a MS Word document using applescript.

    I would like applescript to prompt the user, requesting information from the user and copy information over to the form field/bookmark.

    For instance:
    1. Get and store client info to variable -> clientNameInput (I know how to do that)
    2. Set text of bookmark clientName [ a form field] to clientNameInput
    3. Get delivery date and store it to variable ->deliveryDateInput
    4. Set text of bookmark deliveryDate [ a form field] to deliveryDate

    ...and so on.

    I'm sorry, but the moderator who moved this, what has this to do with iPhone/iPad programming? and not into the Mac programming? ^_-
