Customer Question

I need to know how to create an additional bookmark as a cross reference so that I can right click all in my template and "update fields" and have word copy/replace all the data for me. I had a programmer do this but I need to add additional bookmark fields. I tried to go to insert bookmarks then cross ref, and it says "Error! Reference Source Not Found" Please see: http://understandcontractlawandyouwin.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/03/cross-ref-bookmarks.png and http://understandcontractlawandyouwin.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/03/error-ref-source-not-found.png for a visual of what I mean.

That means that it doesn't find the bookmark originally created that is now being referenced. You may only have to recreate the bookmark or the references to it

If you need someone to take the document and correct it throughout, that's something I can do for you as an additional service. It is one of my specialties - I have a great deal of experience working out word formats on documents for publishers up to a few thousand pages long.

When you highlight the area to bookmark and create the bookmark, there wont be anything obvious that happens. The bookmark will just be created. Then, you can create a link to it by inserting a hyperlink, choosing "place in this document" and then selecting the bookmark.

Yes, I did. That is what my response is based on above.
