How do you insert a user-defined field in a Word document?

I am using Word 2010.

Ctrl+F9 should do the trick. This shortcut enters in an empty field. You may have to enter Shift+F9 to bring it to "field edit" mode, which should show double curly brackets. From there, feel free to use any field codes you need.
