I have a Word Template that contains several textboxes on it (txt_Name, txt_Birthdate, etc.).  I want VB to open the template and fill in the textboxes with values from my program.  I got the template open but I am stuck on how to change the text of the textboxes.  Thanks in advance for the help.

You could insert bookmarks into each of the text boxes and then use the following code to enter the data at the correct location...

oApp.Documents.Open myFileName, , True
oApp.Visible = False
'Find the 'bookmark' and add mytext
oApp.Documents(1).Bookmarks(myBookMarkName).Select
oApp.Selection.TypeText myText

This might work, does anyone have a solution that would allow me to do this without adding a bunch of bookmarks?

You can use the
oApp.Documents(1).fields property, but I'm not 100% sure of the syntax involved...
