Word Variables RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have 3 word documents, a header, body and footer.  Each has document variables and data stored within.

    When I open my base document and insert each of the other documents the variables are lost!  Not the fields just the variables.

    Can someone please explain why?

  • You will need to re-create the variables in the base document.  They will be buried somewhere in the bowels of the other documents and are obviously not being carried over by the insertion.

    It would not be too difficult to create a macro that created the variables and assembled the document from the base and its two other parts.


    Hope this helps.
