    How to copy the Display Name of the content control dropdown list to another plain text CC

    Hi,

    I have a content control dropdown list with few entries.How to copy/mirror the Display Name of entry (not value) from dropdown list to various other plain text content controls within the document. I mean when I select an entry from Dropdown list CC, want the same entry to be displayed in 2 other plain text CC.

    Tried out document property method and OLE link method as described https://gregmaxey.com/word_tip_pages...ting_data.html by Mr. Maxey. But Document property method does not allow CC. And the OLE method requires the links in document to updated every time when there is a selection change in dropdown.

    So how to mirror dropdown selection to various plain text controls using vba.


    I am using the following code to display the value (but not Display Name) of selected entry in a plain text content control.
