Join Mariann Siegert for an in-depth discussion in this video Understanding the importance of naming conventions, part of Building Blocks and Macros in Word.
When naming your building blocks, short simple unique names are best.…It doesn't seem as if the name of a building block would be so important, but…actually it is. And the reason has not so much to do with simply naming the…building block now, but finding and using the building block later.…Let's say for example, you have three building blocks.…One is called Company Name; you have another one that's called Company Address,…you don't need to type this, I just want to show you how this works; and Company Phone.…
When you go to use any of these building blocks, I would have to type Company…space and the letter N in order for my AutoText to even recognize this as a…unique name, because all of them have the word company in front of it.…In other words, for Word to recognize which one you want to use, it must be…unique prior to pressing F3 or before Word can display the Auto-complete pop-up.…
I'm just going to select Company Name here and I'll kind of show you what it…looks like when you actually are naming these.…
