    How do I create character limited form

    In Word 2007, I want to create a fill-in-the-blanks form for my group to use. Their fill-ins should come close to, but can't exceed, a specific character count. Ultimately their answers will be cut-and-pasted into Excel. How do I do this, where do I start?

    If you use the legacy form fields, you can restrict the length of a text form field. Note, you should not mix legacy form fields with the newer fields because the new fields are not designed to work in a protected document. (You can have an unprotected section in a protected form document; that section can have the new controls.)
