I have a form in word 2003 with several text form fields. The problem is that everytime I enter text in these form fields is the text is longer than 1 row the other text form fields are moving down. How could I solve this problem, that is to be able to enter more rows of text in text form fields without moving down the other form fields.
Thank you

Lock the form before completing it - ensure that the lock icon at the far right of the Forms toolbar is selected

for KCTS  There is no connection between my question and your answer.
For anuroshan: In a text form field you don't have this option. You have only some properties specifics to a text form field.

If you lock the form then the position of the boxes are fixed - you can only type in the form fields

I'am sorry but it is not totaly true. Yes you can only type in the form fields if you lock it but if the text is longer than 1 row or you type enter you will see that the text form fields under the text form field you are typing will go down on the page that in fact is my problem.
Thank you

It will be helpful if you could attached an example.
Without an example, I think it might have to do with the text wrapping.
I click "Behind Text" in the "text wrapping function" , resize the font and resize the text box to fit long text.
