Text field that combines field entries and entered text?

Post

On my record, I would like to have a text box that combines text I have typed with text from a database field.  I know this is possible with older versions of FileMaker, but I cannot figure out how it's done in FMP 10.  Essentially, I'd like a sentence that says this:

 

"A note about <Contacts::Contact> at <Firms::Company Name> was updated on <Contacts::Modification Date> by <Contacts::Modifying User>."

 

Is there a way to do this as a "one off" without creating a calculation field for every record?
