Entering fields/Importing fields into a Word 2011 Document


     I am an attorney looking for a solution regarding fillable fields in commonly used legal forms.  As I build my forms library I am discovering that certain data needs to be entered for each case (case number, names of the parties, dates, etc...).  Currently, my templates have place holders that I delete for each client, enter the relevant information and then go to the next place saver.  Not only is it tedious, but the potential to miss a data point is very real and can delay a filing.  I don't like Adobe's solution of static fields (it looks messy on the filing) and Word has a developer section but there are limitations.  I would like to be able to enter fields into my documents so that those fields alone are editable from case to case but the rest of the document remains static.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.  I'm a brand new user so I'm out of my element here. Thank you very much.
