    Create a field that is mandatory (2002)

    Hello everyone. I've created a form that includes - textboxes, dropdowns and checkboxes. I would like to make those fields mandatory, meaning that if a specific field is not fill in, MS Word will not allow the user to move on to the next field. Can this be done in Word? Any help will be greatly appreciated?

    Welcome to Woody's Lounge!

    You need a bit of VBA code for this. See How to validate the contents of a formfield in a Word form on the Word MVP site. Post back if you have further questions.
