    Format a form (2003)

    I am building a form in Word and I am trying to make some lines for written entries. When I insert the _ key to make a line it never ends on the same spot on each line. I tried to paste the text into a cell of a table and it still ends up being jagged at the end. I dont want to use table borders unless I have to as each line has different text and I dont want the text underlined. I also tried table of contents/index but could not figure them out
    Thank you

    Each line would look something like this

    You could place a tab with a tab leader:
    - Select the relevant paragraphs or cells.
    - Select Format | Tabs.
    - Enter a number, e.g. 4" in the Tab stop position box.
    - Select the underscore in the Tab leader section.
    - Click OK.

    Now delete the underscores that you typed, then press Ctrl+Tab to insert a tab (pressing Tab in a table cell will merely take you to the next cell, it doesn't insert a tab). You should see a line right up to the tab position.

    See the attached very simple sample document.
