Word 2007 Radio Buttons in Word 2003

I created a form in Word 2007 with several grouped radio buttons but they are not functional in Word 2003.  The text and dropdown boxes work fine.
It seems the Legacy Controls work fine but the Active X Controls do not.
Any help is greatly appreciated

Thanks,

Edwin

Hello,

golden rule: Always develop in the lowest version that you want to use stuff in. You can expect Word 2007 to recognize and deal with Word 2003 items properly, but you can't expect Word 2003 to recognize and correctly deal with Word 2007 stuff.

Sorry, but that's just how it is.

cheers,

Well, sometimes "it can't be done" is the correct answer. If you need compatibility with several versions, you need to develop your solution in the oldest version in the mix.

That's just how it is, and that's a valid answer.
