I am keying the New South Wales Government Gazettes Part 2. One of the page types is Unclaimed Letters which are just lists of persons' names. There are often over 500 names per set. Some of the fields (such as page number, event type and date) have to be repeated on every one of those 500 lines. I'm in the process of doing a set which requires 5 fields to be repeated. The only way to do it is to enter a value on the first line and then continually hit F3 and the down arrow keys until you reach the bottom. These two keys on my keyboard are consequently going to have to undergo 2500 key presses each in the space of maybe 30 mins. There must be a better way to do this!
