Is there any way to do this without writing a macro? I am a typical Word user, so I have no idea of the complexities of ropa premama use. I'm just learning to use the Developer tab, so please understand I'm a bit of newbie.
Thanks for any help.
There is no simple way to do this.
You could create a UserForm that would have a drop-down list and give you the code in the Word document at the insertion point. A Userform is a custom dialog box and does not involve the developer tab. It involves some real programming in visual basic for applications. See Create a Userform. http://www.gmayor.com/Userform.htm
If you don't mind putting the name as well as the code in your document, you could use a drop-down content control containing the names and use an IF Field to test the content and give the code. http://www.addbalance.com/usersguide...s.htm#IF_field
This would be easier in Excel, I think.
