    Help with doc automation and saving to pdf

    Hello

    I have a 4 page document in word and I need it to do the following:

    Ask for the name of the client and input the name in the <name field>
    Ask for the case number and input the name in the <case field>
    Ask for todays date and input the date in the <date field>
    Ask for a selection from two email addresses and enter the one selected into the field <address field>

    Create document and save each page individually as a pdf and give each page a custom name. So first page would be pleading name of client_case number_ABC.pdf, second would be name of client_case number_xyz.pdf and so forth

    is this something that is doable?
    Where do I even start?

    Any guidance would be much appreciated


    Thank you

    (This is vb programming)
    in the macro vbe area, create a form.
    in the form put boxes for everything you want entered....client name, case, email (date can be automatic)
    put a button on the form that wont enable untill all items needed are entered.
    on button click, put the values from the boxes into the document where needed.

    Whilst this does require a macro, it doesn't really require a userform. It could be done via input boxes, for example, or even in the document itself.
