    I'm designing a form in Word 2010.  Part of this form contains a list of values the user can choose from.  When I click to save it as an .HTM file and then view it in MSIE the form is there but my drop-down list does not work.  Any help on getting this to convert over would be greatly appreciated.

How are you creating your drop-down list; content control or legacy combo box?

I believe via the legacy control box.

I'd suggest testing with the ContenControl approach, it is basically XML and is what MS is going forward with.
