Creating a Form in MS Word
Posted on 2003-11-07
I am trying to create a form in MS Word. I am using the form toolbar to put in drop down lists and text boxes. I am a beginner at this and hence I don’t know if it would better to do it this way or to use the visual basic toolbar to create the form.
The form has the following;
Dropdown box with values: Communication, Technical skills, Learning Orientation
The user has to choose of the values from the drop down box. As soon as he chooses the value a corresponding text has to appear in a text box which is situated below the drop down.
For eg: if the user chooses Communication the text “ measures the communication” should appear in the text box. If he chooses Technical skills the text “technical skills including programming languages” should appear in the text box and so on.
The form has a couple of other drop down lists with values 1, 2,3 and 4.
There is another text below the two dropdown boxes. After the user chooses the values in the two drop down boxes the sum of these values should be displayed in the text box.
The problem is that I have no idea of how to program this since I am a beginner. Also I am not allowed to use any tables or command buttons in the form.
Can anyone please let me know the various detailed steps that I have to follow inorder to create such a form. It would be greatly appreciated!
