Default Copying/referencinf text between document sections

Is there a way to automatically copy text that a user types from one section
of a document
to others?

Basically I need a way to copy the text the user enters into a summary
section, into a table that is at the end of the document. This is filing
sheet that includes the summary as the meta data for logging the document.
I want to copy the full text from one section and place it in another.

Is there someway to mark the text so that a macro or similar can then
reference and copy it, formatting and all to another document section?

Thanks. I think bookmarks are the best I can do for this. Only issue is
that a user can easily delete it when they start typing. I guess a macro to
add one back in around the desired text might work if that is easily
possible.

If it's a block of text, can you use a specific style to mark it? Then you
can use a StyleRef field and avoid the problems of users overwriting
bookmarks.

.... and along comes a user and deletes the paragraph and/or changes the
style. :-)

I could have them format it with a specific style. If I did make a style
for it how then would I use a ref to get the text to show in another
section? Not sure on what you mean by the StyleRef.

If the user is typing into a form field, you can repeat the data later using
a cross-reference (REF field). See
