    Computerized fill-in form (2003 (11.8215.8202) SP3)

    Attached is a form that I am trying to figure out the best way to make it into a computerized fill-in form - Microsoft Word or Microsoft InfoPath? When looking for templates on the Microsoft website I came across a template created via Microsoft InfoPath which is a software on my computer which I have never used. Any recommendations from you - pros / cons of using either? My biggest issue in Word is having the colums/rows shift as data is enterred. Any suggestions to prevent this?

    I don't have or know InfoPath, so I cannot comment on the choice between Word and InfoPath.

    Your document contains form check boxes (from the Forms toolbar). These will only work if the document is protected for forms. As a consequence, you will have to use form text boxes (also from the Forms toolbar) wherever the user should be able to fill in text. You can set the properties of a form text box (while the document is unprotected) by double clicking it. For example, you can specify that the user can enter only a date, or at most 25 characters, etc.

    To prevent the table rows from changing size, you can set their height to "Exactly" a specified amount in the Row tab of Table | Table Properties...
