    Cursor Insertion (Word XP)

    I want to create some sort of marker so the user can press a hot-key and jump to the next point the cursor should go to. I do not want to use the field insertion since the document already uses fields I don't want the user to edit. This also must be something that will not print should it accidentally be left in the document.

    Any other ideas or does Word have this feature, other than using a field, that I am not aware of?

    Thanks!

    How about putting a series of bookmarks in the document and making the key combination a shortcut to your own Macro that steps the user to the next one?

    Or you could put comments at the places where the user should enter data and make the key combination a shortcut to a simple macro that does
    With Application.Browser
    .Target = wdBrowseComment
    .Next
    End With

    Hi Jeannie:
    Another possibility is to use forms. Then the tab key will go from form field to formfield & the user won't be able to edit any other field that's in the document.
