How can you make a tick box in Word 2007 AND 2010 tickable on screen?
Now, I know you can put a legacy tickbox and then protect a form, but there must be another way.
A problem I have discovered is, on my machine with 2010, you can just go to the dev tab and click on 'Checkbox Content Control'. This inserts a tick box which you can pop a cross in 'PERFECT! THIS IS EXACTLY WHAT I WANT' But, when I give it to someone with 2007 on their machine, you cannot tick it and if you double click, it opens the vb editor. Now, my users will never touch vb.
Is it possible therefore, to create a tickbox that can be ticked, or is the only for cross versions of Office to create a protected form each time?
