Text Entry field for Pro Layouts?

I have a Pro Project that I use to create PDF maps for One Call (underground locates)

There are 400 polygons in the Locate.  Each polygon has a text description of the buried assets.

What I am looking for is a method of text entry to enter the ticket number or numbers for the locate.

Right now I simply access the Text Field in the layout and enter the ticket number(s)

what I am envisioning is a table to the right of the layout where I can paste ticket numbers and they will fill out in the text field.

You can paste into the attribute table https://pro.arcgis.com/en/pro-app/latest/help/data/tables/open-tabular-data.htm, I'm not quite sure what you mean tbh.

Table dynamic text might be helpful here. If you have the information stored in a feature layer attribute table or a stand alone table in your map you can use dynamic text to have the layout show the information in the table.
