Adding underlining into Word forms

In adding blank lines for fill-in fields on Word forms, I am having trouble with the blank lines extending when you type on the form.  How can you add lines that will stay the same size as you type on top of them?

I need the lines to stay the length I give it originally so that the form stays consistent.

I have tried the following (which are not favorable):

1.  Overtype on top of an underline;  
2.  Underline the text field; (which will underline just the text typed in)
3.  Drawing a line from the drawing toolbar; (which works the best but cannot always get the line exactly where I want under the text.)

Vickers, one of the easiest ways to create a form is to use the tables...I know of an example, but cannot find the site. It's remarkable how much easier it is to create a form with tables. expert dreamboat showed me - I will ask her to get you the info.
