    Simple form (Word 2002)

    I am trying to create a simple fill in form for work. I have went to the MS website and tried to do what they suggest, but my form just does not work out right. I just want to create a simple fill in form. I want to collect information for general things at work. When I have tried to create my forms and save them I am unable to fill in the form or there is a big grey box to fill in. I have included an example of the type of form I want to create and how I want it to look. Am I useing the wrong program? <img src=/S/broke.gif border=0 alt=broke width=31 height=23>

    Re: Simple form (Word 2002)

    The text boxes in your screenshot seem to be from the VBA controls toolset, but the toolbar is the Forms toolbar.

    With the Forms toolbar you create form fields; they usually look gray. You must lock a document (or the section/sections with form fields) for forms in order to be able to enter something in the form fields. The last button on the Forms toolbar locks/unlocks the document. You can also use Tools/Protect document
