    Editing and Spell Check (Word 2003)

    Is there a way to allow editing and spell check in a protected, templated form? I have a macro that performs spell check when you exit a form field, but the macro does not stay with the form when it is E-mailed.

    I think you'll have to include the macro in the document and send it as an attachment.

    The form will eventually be placed in a main access folder on our server so that anyone can save the form on their computer. Do you have any suggestions for providing the macro to these users? Also, is there a way to allow the users to format their typed text without unprotecting the form? Thank you in advance for any suggestions or assistance you may provide.

    If the template is accessible to users on the network, documents based on the template will be able to make use of the macros in the template.

    <post:=342,898>post 342,898</post:> contains code and an attachment that demonstrate how to switch between protecting the document if the insertion point is in a section containing form fields, and unprotecting it if the insertion point is in a section without form fields, so that all formatting options become available.
