    Fill-in fields (Word 2000)

    Many apologies, as I know this is basic and I know I've seen it covered before, but I've searched and can't find it.

    I need to place a field in a word doc. The text would say "Type name here" and when you click on it what you type replaces the field.

    Thanks for your kind help and understanding.

    Try
    <pre>{ MacroButton NoMacro "Type Name Here" }
    </pre>

    Where the { and } are inserted as field codes, using Control-F9

    Hi Grant:
    {macrobutton nomacro Type name here}

    where the curly braces are inserted by pressing Ctrl+F9. You can skip from field to field by pressing F11, as well as by clicking.

    Cheers,
