I am trying to create a simple word template that prompts a user for basic information such as type of document, how to distribute the file and who to distribute to, review date and effective from date.
I first tried with the fillin fields but as the data goes into the header or footer, it all got very messed up.
So after some searching I tried the ASK field and added the field, a bookmark, a ref field after the ask field and inserted a autonew macro.
Result I open document based on template and no prompts.
I cannot believe this is so hard for such a simple task.
I have attched my result document in the hope someone can point me in the right direction, or point me in the direction of a user guide for the task. I have not found one myself.
the macro added to the template was this
Dim Fld As Field
For Each Fld In ActiveDocument.Fields
If Fld.Type = wdFieldAsk Or Fld.Type = wdFieldFillIn Then
Thank you for any help.
