  • Select the “Insert” tab from the Office menu bar and click on the “Quick Parts” button. Choose “Document Property” from the menu.

  • Select “Abstract” from the "Document Property" sub-menu to insert a new content control into your document.

  • When the content control box appears, enter the data you want repeated; click outside of the control box when you are finished entering your data to complete editing.

  • Repeat steps 2 and 3 whenever you want your repeated data to appear again in the document, choosing "Abstract" each time. Word 2007 will automatically fill the content control with the data entered in the first box.
