I am trying to set up a Word file such that when a certain value is updated at the beginning of the document, all corresponding values in the rest of the document are changed. Therefore, how can I link certain text in my document to reference one specific piece of text.

I have tried playing around with Objects, however, I have not been able to find what I am looking for.

For example:

"Thomas is a cat."

..further down in the document

"Since Thomas is a cat, he..."

If I change the first sentence to "Thomas is a dog."

then the second sentence should automatically change to

"Since Thomas is a dog, he.."
