Word 2000 - updating cell content in another document?
Subject:Word 2000 - updating cell content in another document? From:"Bolce-Gormley, Caroline" <Cbolcego -at- usa -dot- capgemini -dot- com> To:"TECHWR-L" <techwr-l -at- lists -dot- raycomm -dot- com> Date:Thu, 15 Feb 2001 09:51:43 -0600
Using Word 2000, I'm trying to update a table in Document A with
descriptions that can change in Doc B, C, etc. I want to be able to
include the text of the each description itself (one from Doc B, one
from Doc C, etc.) but into the description column in Doc A. That way,
only the summary documents (Doc B, C, etc.) must be maintained, and
changes will reflect back into the description column in Doc A.

Any ideas as to how I can ensure that any change made inside the
description cell in Doc B, C, etc., is reflected back into Doc A
