Inserting the User's Address

by Allen Wyatt
(last updated September 2, 2017)

Word automatically maintains several items of information about you, as a user. One such item is your address, which is changed on the User Information tab of the Options dialog box. If you want to automatically insert the user address in your documents, you can follow these steps:

  1. Position the insertion point where you want the user address inserted.
  2. Choose Field from the Insert menu. You will see the Field dialog box.
  3. In the Categories drop-down list, choose User Information. (See Figure 1.)
  4. Figure 1. The Field dialog box.

  5. In the Field Names list choose UserAddress.
  6. Click on OK to close the dialog box and insert your field.
