In Word 2007 it is under the "Developer" portion of the ribbon -> Controls -> Text. You could also use the legacy version of the text form field under -> Controls -> Legacy Tools -> Text Form Field
Oh! Just discovered that the "Developer" tab is not enabled by default... had to enable it through "Word Options > Popular"
Thanks for the help
One question though.. After configuring the entire document, is it possible to use the "update field" command for all the fields in the document, at once?

This is software, written by Mouser, specifically written to help with this kind of situation.
Thanks a lot for pointing it out...
I liked it, but there are few problems with it:
1. It allows a *key* to be used at only ONE PLACE in the document. That doesn't serve my purpose.
2. Less importantly, it works with only plain text... Would be time consuming if the document requires some formatting. Probably, it would be more useful if it were a plugin to Word, blending with other features of Word.
