    Creating a check box

    Hello,

    I am creating a template for users to complete online. I was wondering if anyone could tell me as to how I can create a check box within Word, allowing users to check the box with either a check mark or an "X".

    Thanks in advance,

    K

    If you display the Forms toolbar, there is a Check Box Form Field. Just place the insertion point where you want the check box, then click the Check Box Form Field button. Then click the Form Field Options button, to choose from the available options.

    If you want users to print out and fill out manually the form, the Forms toolbar solution is quite right. If you want to go one step further, you can use the Forms toolbar, then protect the document (Tools, Protect, Forms) and then the users can fill out the form on screen just by tabbing through the fields. I do this all the time.

    Take a look at the Checkbox template downloadable from (<A target="_blank" HREF=http://www.addbalance.com/word/download/>http://www.addbalance.com/word/download/).

    I am having some difficulty with my site (switching web hosts). If the link above doesn't work, try <A target="_blank" HREF=http://www13.addr.com/~kenyonck/word/download/index.htm>http://www13.addr.com/~kenyonck/word/download/index.htm</A>.

    Hello Charles,
    Your first two url's did not work but the third did. I downloaded the template and got the typical "... illegal operation ... will be shut down" message. I'm guessing the illegal operation message is due to a problem on my end? <img src=/S/crazy.gif border=0 alt=crazy width=15 height=15>
