Microsoft Form - Default opening page for form

Hello,

I have created a form in Microsoft Word that has a number of fields that users must fill in, including answering questions using radio buttons, which can be totaled to give the user a final score.

My problem is that when the form document opens it automatically defaults to the second page of the form. I believe this is because this is where the first field exists for users to fill in. I however would like for the document to default to opening on the first page of the document.

Are there any suggestions on how I can accomplish this? I will attach my document below.

Thank you for any help,
Bethany

even with:
Private Sub Document_Open()
'190623
   Selection.HomeKey Unit:=wdStory
End Sub

Open in new window

I found it went to the first field to fill ... the first place where the user is allowed to go.  Perhaps create a dummy control at the top to land on?

Hi Crystal,

Thanks for your suggestions. I actually had already tried your suggestion, I have a dummy field currently located near the top of the document (TextBox7), but the document doesn't seem to default to here when it opens....

Any other suggestions?

you can send it there in the open event -- ask for something like their initials

If it is desired to position the form at the top when opening, then there needs to be something at the top for the user to fill since a Word form seems to open with the first control where a response is required
