I work at a school and we sometimes will use the same template document for our assignments every year. Often we'll also re-use assignments, especially if they are just practice assignments. The problem is that the course codes and years vary. For instance, this term I have "ME101 Winter 2019" as the title to all of my documents, next term it will be "ME101 Spring 2019", while in the fall the course is "GENE121 Fall 2019".
There are several places in each document where we need to go through and manually change all the years, terms, and course codes. This leads to us missing one or two every semester, and it is generally just a pain to do.
Is it possible to make Word do this for us? For instance, can we create variables of some kind in a word document and then just update those variables each time we open a document to edit it for a new semester?
