Understanding Form Basics

A form is a special kind of protected document that includes fields where people can type information. Any document that includes form fields is a form. A form field is a location on-screen where you can do one of three things—enter text, toggle a check box on or off, or select from a drop-down list.

Tables provide the structure for many forms, because a table's cells are an ideal framework for a form's labels and information fields. You can type labels in some cells, and insert form fields in others. Tables also make adding shading and borders to forms an easy job. You can place a dark border around a selected group of cells in a table, for example, while including no border at all around other cells. With the gridlines turned off, a table doesn't have to look like a table at all, and thus makes the ideal framework for a form.
