  • Click Insert > Fields and then select the pre-defined field that you want to create.

  • You have the following optional fields to select:
    Document and DocInformation
    The information might be pulled from User Data, such as Author name or initials, and from File Properties, such as the file name and statistics.
    Cross references are extremely useful when composing a long document with internal link and reference relationship. For example, a product specification with diagrams, or a book with charts.
    The fields allow you to assign conditions to certain functions.
    Variable fields let you add dynamic content to your document. For example, you can use a variable to reset the page numbering.
    The Database field allows you to insert the name of the database table that is selected in the Database selection field.
