    Add Text Values (2003)

    I have a Word document with text form fields.

    I would like to know if it is possible to enter text in a form field (call it UserName) and the document would take the value entered in UserName and combine it with a constant value in another field?

    Example: Doejohn is entered in the form field UserName. The Constant value for UserAssign is 0723. Form would "calculate" the value Doejohn and 0723 and the result of Doejohn0723 would be displayed in the UserAssign Field when exiting the UserName field.

    1) Create a macro in a standard module in the document:

    Sub SetName()
    ActiveDocument.FormFields("UserAssign").Result = _
    ActiveDocument.FormFields("UserName").Result & "0723"
    End Sub

    2) While the document is unprotected, double click the UserName field and select SetName in the Exit dropdown list, then click OK.

    3) Protect the document again.
