Does anyone know 'an easy way' to add a variable to a Microsoft Word document? ...

The SET and ASK fields allow you to set bookmarks
in the document that are replaced by the value of
the field. Using SET, you change the value by
inserting a SET= field at the beginning of the
doc; using ASK, Word asks you for the value when
you print.
