Not sure if it matters but I have Microsoft Office 2011 for Mac

I'm looking for a way for the following to happen:

Enter text in one area once. The text entered will appear in four other user specified locations within the body of my document. Everything will appear seamless as if it were just typed

Basically, I could Copy and Paste to achieve the same goal, but I have to do this for many documents and want to make sure I don't miss a "paste"

Thanks!

Only thing I can come up with needs SharePoint;

1) Create a content type in SharePoint and add the metadata you want to include as properties
2) Create a custom document information panel for that content type using InfoPath Designer
3) Upload your document to SharePoint and set it to use your customer Content Type

Thanks for the response. But I'm afraid that is way over my head and I didn't understand any of it

In my head it was all very simple. Maybe it's a limitation of Word? I'm fairly certain in certain forms, when you enter text in a field (say Name), it can auto-populate any subsequent corresponding fields with that text. Or is the problem that I'm trying to make it appear as seamless as possible and fit into the document?
