    Form with hotspots (Word 2000)

    Does anyone know how to build a template in MS Word. I have the new palm Computer from Casio, and what I am trying to do is build a template for military range inspections with hot buttons which would make it easier to fill out reports, but can't figure out how to do it...HELP

    Hi,

    I'm not really sure what you mean when you say "hot buttons."

    Check boxes?
    Radio buttons?
    Macro buttons?

    You may want to check out the links at <A target="_blank" HREF=http://www.addbalance.com/word/wordwebresources.htm#Forms>Web Resources - Forms</A>.

    Building a template is easy. File => Save As... => Word Template (*.dot) file. Putting active content into the template is the hard part.

    How about a simple but detailed example of what it is you want the user to be able to do and what you want to happen when the user does that?

    Hotspots is a term I last read in Windows 3.1 Help documentation. This has been replaced by the more common but more complex term, "hyperlink".

    Could you be wanting certain dotted-underline text which, if clicked, will take you to another place in the document, or even launch another document or application ?

    If that is so, you have to "bookmark" the destination and apply a "hyperlink" to the source text, where you specify that a click should allow you to jump to the bookmarked spot in the same document.
