How do I get this drop down box to work.

Trying to create a dynamic drop down list in Word using VBA
MO Word 2013 Windows 7 Enterprise
Currently, when I click in the first drop down, nothing happens.  The first option shows, but I am not able to change it.  the second drop down is blank.
I thought I would be able to click in the first drop down, then select one of the four values.
I am using Legacy Drop Down Form Field.
using this as a tutorial:

Here is my Word Doc with 2 drop downs.  
This is just to learn it, my actual project will be for the user to use many drop downs and the values will create a letter that can be sent to the client.  So depending on what the user selects, will populate the word document.  I could have used Adobe Pdf with javascript, but then I would be the only one who could update it.  I thought with word, the user could update any content themselves.  but I am open to other platforms.
This is my First Drop down, for the North, South, West and EastThis is my second Drop down.
Sub PopulateddState()
    Dim MyCase As String
    MyCase = ActiveDocument.FormFields("ddRegion").Result
    Select Case MyCase

    Case "North"
        With ActiveDocument.FormFields("ddState").DropDown.ListEntries
            .Clear
            .Add "Michigan"
            .Add "Ohio"
        End With
    Case "South"
        With ActiveDocument.FormFields("ddState").DropDown.ListEntries
            .Clear
            .Add "Georgia"
            .Add "Texas"
        End With
    Case "East"
        With ActiveDocument.FormFields("ddState").DropDown.ListEntries
            .Clear
            .Add "New York"
            .Add "Maine"
        End With
    Case "West"
        With ActiveDocument.FormFields("ddState").DropDown.ListEntries
            .Clear
            .Add "California"
            .Add "Oregon"
        End With
    End Select
 End Sub

Usually it's better to attach the word document here, tracking errors will be MUCH faster.

@Norie,  No i did not, I figured that just needed to be done before others could use it.  I did not even think of trying that.  I will try that now.
I now have my drop down functionality.   Wow, I guess I should have at least tried that before asking.  Thanks Norie and Kimputer
