    Form Fields (Word 2000/2003)

    Is there a way to use a form, but have a field which was basically a free text field which allowed formatting functions such as bold and font changes? Also, can anyone recommend a good tutorial on using forms?

    Thanks from a Form newbie.

    Jeanie,
    Ohhh, we all miss the search feature!!!

    Text inside fields does not get the full benefit of Word. If you have enough information in one field that would warrant formatting (even spell checking), use continuous sections. Once the document is protected, the user can only work in fields (including check boxes, etc.) and unprotected sections. I've attached a sample document. To make protected & unprotected sections, click on the "Sections" button when you protect the document for Forms.

    There's not much to basic form work. I figured it out myself with help from the Loungers and messing with forms. Woody's book, Using MS Office 2000 helped, though Word forms take up only two pages.
