Part V: Mastering Special Features > Building Forms and Fill-In Dialog Boxes

Chapter 23. Building Forms and Fill-In Dialog Boxes

  • Printed forms

    Create printed forms (from a blank Word template) that duplicate the appearance of your on-screen Word forms.

  • On-screen data entry forms

    Build on-screen forms in Word that display fill-in edit boxes, pull-down lists, and check boxes. Protect these forms so users can fill in the data, but not change a form.

  • Request data needed to complete a document

    Create fields in any Word documents that request data once from the user, but then repeat the data as needed throughout the document.

  • Automate the control of forms

    Create a simple program that controls your forms when the form document opens.

In the past, one office task that word processors were not able to do well was fill in forms. Typewriters were always needed to fill in a form. Storage rooms and filing cabinets took up space just to keep months' worth of inventory of forms that, in some cases, were so seldom used they were obsolete before they ever left the shelf.
