You didn't mention what version of Word you are using.

With Word 8, you can use a new field, DocVariable, to do what you want.

With Word 6 and 7, you can use the File, Summary Info screen to save a
few pieces of information (assuming you're not using those items for
their intended purpose <g>), and then put them in your document using a
Document Information field.
