Insert a bookmark field

To print the information assigned to a bookmark (bookmark: A location or selection of text in a file that you name for reference purposes. Bookmarks identify a location within your file that you can later refer or link to.) by an ASK or SET field (field: A set of codes that instructs Microsoft Word to insert text, graphics, page numbers, and other material into a document automatically. For example, the DATE field inserts the current date.), you must insert a bookmark field in the main document (main document: In a mail-merge operation in Word, the document that contains the text and graphics that are the same for each version of the merged document, for example, the return address or salutation in a form letter.) where you want Microsoft Word to print the information.

  1. In the main document, click where you want Word to print the information.
  2. Press CTRL+F9 to insert a pair of field characters ({ }).
  3. Between the field characters, type the name of the bookmark you defined in the SET or ASK field.

If the bookmark name is also the name of a Word field, type REF before the bookmark name; for example, { REF Title }.


To ensure that the bookmark name matches the name in the ASK or SET field, copy the bookmark name, and then paste it between the field characters.
