Create, change, or remove business information data

Business information sets are customized groups of information, about either an individual or an organization, that can be used to quickly fill in appropriate places in publications, such as business cards and flyers.

The business information set can include components such as an individual's name, job position or title, organization name, address, phone and fax numbers, e-mail address, tagline or motto, and logo. You can create as many different business information sets as you want.

When you create a publication, the business information set that you have used most recently is used to populate the new publication. If you have not yet created any business information sets, the user's and organization's names are inserted from the information that you provided when 2007 Microsoft Office system was installed.

Remove business information from your publications

You can manually remove specific instances of any portion of a business information set from the open publication. Alternatively, you can remove information from the business information set itself, thereby removing all instances of that information from the open publication and from any other publications that you subsequently update.

Manually remove an instance of business information from the open publication

In a publication, select any business information — such as one line of your business's address — and then press DELETE.

All other instances of the business information that you delete remain unchanged, both in the open publication and in all other existing publications.

 Note   For example, if you delete one instance of an address line that appears three times in the open publication, the other two instances still appear.

Remove information components from a business information set

  1. On the Edit menu, click Business Information.
  2. Under Select a business information set, click the business information set that you want to change, and then click Edit.
  3. In the Edit Business Information dialog box, delete the text or logo that you want to remove, and then click Save.
  4. Click Update Publication to refresh the open publication.

 Notes 

  • When you delete any information component from a business information set, new Publisher-designed publications that you create after making that change do not contain the component that you deleted.
  • The information component that you delete from the business information set is deleted from the open publication only. To delete it from other existing publications, open each publication individually and click Update Publication in each.
