    Wordwrap in Forms (Word 2003)

    I have created a form from a table and need to wordwrap the text in a text field box.
    How do I do this?

    Is this a text field from the forms toolbar? If I put one of those in a table cell then the text seems to wrap without me needing to do anything.

    Welcome to Woody's Lounge!

    I assume you mean a form in a document - if you meant a userform in the Visual Basic Editor, please holler.

    Did you create the "text field box" from the Forms toolbar or from the Control Toolbox toolbar?

    I created the text form field by click on the icon on the Forms toolbar.

    This table was created in a Word 2003 doc.

    As StuartR mentioned, a text form field in a table cell should automatically wrap text. Make sure that
    a) The table as a whole has NOT been set to Automatically resize to fit contents (Table | Table Properties, Table tab, Options), and
    [img]/forums/images/smilies/cool.gif[/img] The individual cells have been set to wrap text (this is the default setting, in Table | Table Properties, Cell tab, Options), and
    c) Of course, the document must have been protected for forms.
