How to update two Microsoft Word documents

Not sure if this is possible but I wanted to ask anyways. I'm using Microsoft Word 2010 and have two documents that I always update. Both of them have sections that are pretty redundant. Is there a chance that if I update one document, then the other document will automatically update too?

    Never seen it done in Word. You might need to write a script to do a find and replace of the changed text for one doc to the next. Then again that can get tricky as how to pass the find text if it's a large amount... There may be other options if we knew just how much text you are looking to update in the second document.

    What did you want this may possible, by crating a link in MS word. If the situation is like that, you are going to insert the block of text as a link. First create a document containing the text you want to link to. Now copy the whole text that is to be inserted in other documents (multiple). Open the document(s) where the text block is to be inserted. Now place/ keep the cursor where the text to be appeared. Now click edit menu, select paste special. From paste special dialog box just select paste link (radio button) by following and choosing desired format.
