I want to insert checked!! check boxes into a Word Form.
How can I do this using VBA and {formcheckbox}. btw: Not using the Insert Checkbox-Button inserts a Field where I cannot set properties for the box later. It says that this field was not inserted by the button ??! What kind of document-automation limitation is that - I can't grab any sense of it.
What can I do?

It isn't clear exactly what you are doing, but the InsertCheckBox Sub in the snippet should insert a checkbox and set its value. The CallInsertCheckBox Sub shows the usage.
Sub CallInsertCheckBox()
    InsertCheckBox ActiveDocument.Bookmarks("\EndOfDoc").Range
End Sub
 
Sub InsertCheckBox(rng As Range)
    Dim ffld As FormField
    Set ffld = ActiveDocument.FormFields.Add(rng, wdFieldFormCheckBox)
    ffld.CheckBox.Value = True
End Sub

Open in new window

hm, ok, I get it.
The way I do it now via automation is by .insertfield because users can configure their fields for the text.
Wanting to use .insertfield you probably say that it is impossible, right?

I'm not sure that I understand. I don't think that there is an InsertField method

I cannot find a way of adding a FormField to the Fields collection. It mus be added to the FormFields collection.
