is create a form template, and here's how you do it in Word 2003:-
1. The heart of the form is the fields that you create for subsequent data entry. These take the place of the blanks on a pen-and-paper form, and come in several different types.
These are basic data fields. They allow your users to enter text, which includes letters, numbers and symbols. You can control the length of these fields (the default length is unlimited) as well as the format of the text. You can force the text to be uppercase, lowercase, etc. Text fields can also contain numbers, and can even perform calculations with the numbers. They can also be set to contain the date or time.
Check box fields
To be used to mark a selection.
Drop-down form fields
These are drop-down boxes that allow you to give the user a list to choose from. They are limited to 25 entries.
2. The Forms toolbar
This has the buttons you need to create a form. To view it, go to the View menu, and select 'Toolbars' and then 'Forms'. You'll see(from left to right):
a) Insert text field
b) Insert check box
c) Insert drop-down box
d) Edit field options
e) Draw table
f) Insert table
g) Insert frame
h) Turn field shading on or off (This only affects what you see while working on the form; the fields are not shaded when you print)
i) Reset form fields
j) Lock form
3.Once the Forms toolbar is open, you can start placing form fields into the document.
4.It's a good idea to protect your form as you go along. Go to Tools and choose 'Protect document' On the menu on the right, click the “Allow only this type of editing” checkbox and choose “Filling in forms” from the drop-down menu. Click on the “Yes, Start Enforcing Protection” button.
5.When you've finished creating your form don't forget top save it. Make sure that it's locked, and then go to File and then choose 'Save As' Save your document as a template, which has a .dot extension. Make sure to save it in the same directory as your other templates. Whatever you do, don't inadvertantly name the file 'Normal.dot' or Word will cease working properly.
6.To create a form from your template, go to File and choose 'New'. This will offer you a menu. Under Templates, click “On my computer”. That will offer you a list of your templates. Choose the one you just saved, and your form will be generated. It will be protected, so nobody can alter the formatting, and it will open with the cursor in the first field, ready for data entry.
Is that what you wanted?
