FILL-IN ["prompt"] [switches ]

Prompts you to enter text by displaying a dialog box.

promptText displayed in the dialog box.
\dSpecifies a default response if you type nothing in the prompt dialog box.
\oPrompts just once during a mail merge instead of each time a new data record is merged
The same response is inserted in each resulting merged document

* The prompt is displayed each time the FILL-IN field is updated.
* If the FILL-IN field is in a mail merge main document, the prompt is displayed each time a new data record is merged unless you use the \o switch.
* Your response is printed in place of the field. To insert your response in more than one location, use an ASK field.
* When a new document is created based on a template containing FILL-IN fields, the fields are updated automatically.
* This field is actually displayed in the dialog box as FILL-IN.
* This field is often used to help personalise letters during a mail merge.
* This field helps you fill in the correct information by displaying the patient name from the current data record; for example, "Please enter the appointment time for Patrick Martin." Insert an ASK or FILL-IN field in the main document, and then insert the merge field in the field codes.
* The field { FILL-IN "Enter typist's initials:" \d "tds" } inserts "tds" if no response is entered. If you don't specify a default response, Microsoft Word uses the last response entered. To specify a blank entry as the default, type empty quotation marks after the switch; for example, type \d ""
* For the Microsoft documentation refer to
