CheckIt Boxes created in Word 2003 Doc will not work in 2013

We have fax cover sheet created in Word 2003 with CheckIt Boxes.  Checking the boxes in 2013 does not work.  I understand I have to do something with protecting the document while declaring certain parts editable.  Nothing seems to work.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

I cannot check the boxes in the DOC format. I upgraded to DOCX and it still did not work. I suggest you remake the FAX cover sheet with Word 2013.  It will only be another couple of months until Word 2016 is out, so it will probably be a good idea to upgrade the document anyway.

The 'check boxes' are in fact Macrobutton fields. Such a field needs to be set up so that it runs a particular VBA macro. There are no macros in the document, so the macros are probably in a template. This could be the template that the document is created from, the Normal template or another global template.

Sorry it took so long guys, but I fell and ended up with a torn ACL and MCL.  So, I have been pre-occupied with doctors, drugs and a great deal of pain. But I now have a recliner with a 60" monitor hanging on the wall about 8' away.  Works great.  

Both answers led me to the solution but essentially the document had to be recreated in Word 2013.  I guess we can't hold Mr. Gates to his commitment that all Microsoft products will be upwardly compatible, forever.
