    Text Field (Word 97)

    When you double click on a text field when creating a template or form we get the attached error. We should be able to add help text etc.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks

    If this occurs for a single form field, delete it and create it anew.
    If it occurs for all form fields in a single document, try to create the document anew.
    If it occurs in all documents, see if Phil Rabichow's <!post=Systematic Approach to Behavioral Problems in Word (Word 97/2000),197827>Systematic Approach to Behavioral Problems in Word (Word 97/2000)<!/post> helps pinpointing the culprit.
    If that doesn't help, you might consider reinstalling Word.

    Thanks Hans

    This happens in all documents - I am going to try reinstalling Word first of all - then I will look at the data key if this doesnt work.

    Hi Carolyn:
    The DATA key is generally the last thing you look at in the post Hans mentioned. I would certainly try the other steps mentionedf first.
    Cheers,
