Microsoft Word

Hi All,

Suppose I have two word documents named A and B. If I write something on A , then is it possible that the content of A will automatically save on B?


Thanks

@PrasadWF-9762

Please refer to JohnKorchok's suggestion, that use a macro to achieve your needs.
But tag "office-word-itpro" focus more on general issue of Word client, if you have further issues of macro code, it's better to add a tag "office-vba-dev".
Thanks for your understanding.

If you don't mind, you can try to insert the document B as an object into document A and create a link between this object and document B.
Then you could edit the object in document A, the data would be saved on document B.

You can duplicate content from one document into another by referencing content with an INCLUDETEXT field.

Or you can make use of Paste Special in the target document, choosing to paste as link.
