Hello all,

I have a Word 2010 Form Template that is protected from modification and only allows filling in fields.
It also has specified required fields for my employees to fill out.

Is it possible to insert a VB button at the bottom of the form or document to:

1. First validate required fields

2. Save the filled out form to a docx or pdf file based on required fields-
(example required fields First Name, Last Name and Date. Take those fields and save  the filled form as SmithJohn12022010.pdf)

3. Alert the user the form has been saved.

4. Print the form

5. Reset / clear form fields.

Any help is much appreciated. Thanks.
