    Tab to fields in a template (Word 97)

    Is it possible to put tab stops to the fields in a form template so people can just tab to the next field(s) they have to fill-in?
    Thanks

    When you are finished with your form, turn on the padlock button on the forms toolbar and save the form. Open the form template as a document by going to File, New and select your form. When it opens, it will be locked and the user can only tab to the fields you have created.

    Hi Mary:
    Actually, you should open the template itself not just File/New), and then lock the template for forms, as has been suggested.

    Otherwise, if the fields were not inserted using the Forms toolbar, your users can use the F11 key to advance to the next field.
