    Macros in Word (Word 2000)

    I am working in Word and trying to create a form where the user can enter a name and everywhere else they need that name to appear it is automatically entered so that the user doesn't have to enter the same thing over and over.

    Also, I need a macro where the user is asked a question and they must answer it. If their answer is one thing, certain information will be input, if they answer something else either different information will appear or the form field will be blank.

    This document is like a permit and the wording is continuous sort of like in a letter. There are no blocks set up for information, it is continuous. See below for example:

    Information Information Information Information Information {form field} Information Information Information Information. Information Information Information Information {form field} Information Information Information Information Information .

    Sure hope someone can lend me a hand <img src=/S/help.gif border=0 alt=help width=23 height=15>

    Thanks

    You are talking about what Word calls an online form, if you want your user to not have the option of modifying the text. Follow the links at <A target="_blank" HREF=http://www.addbalance.com/word/wordwebresources.htm#Forms>Web Resources - Forms</A> for more information. Also check your help screens, using the terms "online form."

    Otherwise, you may be looking for the Ask field, combined with an If field, or even a UserForm. You may want to download and explore the following tutorials:
    ASK field tutorial and UserForm tutorial at
    <A target="_blank" HREF=http://www.addbalance.com/word/download/index.htm#Tutorials>my Word download page</A> (addbalance.com/word/download/).

    Other sample forms using form fields:
    <A target="_blank" HREF=http://www.addbalance.com/defense/SPD/paymentV.zip>Payment Voucher Showing Time Worked and Expenses - Wisconsin Public Defender</A>
    <A target="_blank" HREF=http://www.addbalance.com/defense/SPD/spd_exp.zip>Request for Permission to Hire Expert / Investigator - Wisconsin State Public Defender</A>
    <A target="_blank" HREF=http://www.addbalance.com/defense/SPD/transreq.zip>Request for Transcript - Wisconsin Public Defender</A> (tab order varied)
    (These are simply forms that work. At least one has an unprotected section.)

    BTW, once you have entered a bit of information in a document, you can repeat it elsewhere in the document using the REF field. The original information must be marked with a bookmark. If you are using a protected form, all formfields automatically have bookmarks attached to them; make sure you check the property for "calculate on exit" for the formfield that will be the source of your information.
    Hope this helps.

    Use an ASK field to get the data the first time and bookmark that field. Then use a REF field to insert that data in other places in your document.
