Hi experts,

I have a client that wants some templates for his company. They need to be protected from writing so I made dot-templates with Forms where you fill in what you need into grey input boxes.

The problem is that in a particular template. I need to be able to add more if needed.

Shown below - [] marks an input field, <> marks a regular field.

Case nr. <AutoNumberLgl Field>

In charge:   [Name]
Deadline:    [01.01.1970]

At the moment I have a macro at the Exit of the Deadline input field, but it doesn't want to add text to the document since it's been protected.

Any ideas how to do this or how to get around the problem?
