How to use the Text Form Field in MS Word 2000?

Question: How to use the Text Form Field in MS Word 2000?

Hi,

I have a doc which I have added the many checkboxes by using Check Box Form Field. Now I want to add textbox for others to enter text. I have added a Text Form Field to the doc but it is kind of hard to tell that there is a field in there. How I can make something like this:

___________________________________________

___________________________________________

___________________________________________

so others can enter text above the lines only or making an enclosed box so others can only enter text inside the box?

Thank you for any help,

Peter

I know the Include Field will include part of the text from an Include File if it is in a bookmark. The format is {IncludeText "File Path" Bookmark}. I have 2 files: Source and Target.

Source is a form template. I included a Text Form Field and gave it the bookmark AA. I also included other text in a "normal" bookmark, BB.

In Target I have 2 fields: {IncludeText "C:\\Source.dot" AA} and {IncludeText "C:\\Source.dot" BB}. The text from BB shows up, but the one for AA is blank.

If I go into Source and look under Bookmarks, both AA and BB are there.

BTW, I have tried it with the Source form both "Protected" and "Unprotected" and it didn't make any difference.

Any idea why this is happening, and more importantly, any idea on how to make this work? If not, it seems like a real bug in Word 2003 as they are both definitely considered to be bookmarks.

Thank you,

Stuart

I have a table consisting of 8 columns by 26 rows. In each cell, I'm adding a Text Form Field. Is there anyway, besides doing it cell by cell, where I can just copy a row, then paste the same Text Form Field with text length maximums in the other 25 rows?
 

Answer:Word - Text Form Field

Sure, Brian.
Create first row.
In Print Layout view, take your mouse pointer to the left of the left-most cell in the row, and it should turn into a 1:00 pointing arrow. Click to select the whole row, then Ctrl+C to copy. Place your cursor in front of the paragraph return just below the table OR in the left-most cell of the row that you want a new row above, and hit Paste.

Hello All.

I am attempting to create Text Form Fields in a previously created Word document. It was not created from a form template.

The field is the DAY in the date field: 10//007. I put the insertion point in the DAY field, click on the Text Form Field icon and fill in the field attributes. Type=Number, Max length=2. I type in a Help description, click OK, save the file, and click on the Protect icon.

When I key in a 2-digit num and press tab, the next page comes up. The same thing happens if I try to put in alpha characters. My help message does not appear. I pressed F1.

I would appreciate any help with this issue.
TIA

As I stated in my previous post, I'm creating a survey to send out in Word 2003 using text form fields and check box form fields. When typing comments in the text form fields, if the comments go above a certain word count, it is impossible to see what you are typing.

As it appears there is no way to make these text form fields scrollable, it is possible to make the text form field expandable when typing in it?

Hi,

I am currently using Word 2003 and have created a template. Within the template are text fields. My current issue is that if I make a change to formatting in one of the text fields, it replicates to all of the text fields. To give an example in the screen shot if I enter text then change the formatting under Point 1 (Project Statement) that change remains with that text field. If I go down to the next form field, and before entering any text, make formatting changes, that replicates to all of the form fields below. Similarly if text is entered first, then a formatting change made i.e. bullet point, that then seems to replicate through to the rest of the text fields. Can someone please explain as to why this is happening? thanks.

Each time the Enter key is pressed while in a Word form field, it adds an extra line to the field. This ruins the layout. How do you stop the Enter key from doing this ( or how do you keep fields a defined size? )

Hi there,
I have recieved several word files that have me stuck in form field view... I have tried toggling (Alt + F9) but still only see the Form field {FORMTEXT} If I print it the correct word/name can be seen, if I forward it to another person they can see it correctly. I have removed and reinstalled Office hoping that the settings would default back ( I am thinking I set something ) This also did not correct the viewing. I've compared my settings under tools/options to another machine who is not having this problem.. they are the same... there must be some (probably simple) thing/setting that I am missing.

Heres how to make a TICK work in a word form instead of a check box.

Set up your form as normal

Add the text form fields where you want and use this macro to put a tick in the field. If you want the "boxed tick" symbol then change the CharacterNumber to = 3842

If you want bigger ticks just change the font size.

It?s a good idea to set the macro as a tool bar button if lots of ticks are needed in your forms etc
Remember to lock the form before starting.

Just created a Word (2000) form. One of the fields requires the entry of a start time, and is formatted as a Date field with format HH:mm. The next field requires the entry of an end time, same type and format. I would like the next field to calculate the elapsed time (hours as a decimal [e.g., 1.5 hours]. I tried entering bookmark names for the start- (Stime1) and end time (Etime1) fields, then putting in a calculation field with the expression "=Etime1-Stime1". Doesn't work; always displays 0.

How can I configure a form field to calculate the elapsed time between two other fields in the document?

Hi, I'm just exploring the Legacy Controls and Form Fields in Microsoft Word, and I'm having a problem that almost looks too dumb to put in writing, but that I can't seem to figure out!

When I insert a form field for text, and then restrict the document for editing, I want typing to appear inside the form field, and with the same formatting as I've set. Right now, when I restrict access and try to fill it in, it looks more like:

____asdfjkl;_________________

The typing inserts itself, but doesn't appear in the formatting I want (size, underline, etc.)

Is there a way to change this before I restrict the document for editing?

See attachment for a screen-shot of what I'm talking about.

Thanks in advance; this one really has got me puzzled.

I'm creating a form in Word 2003 that will be filled out both electronically and as a written form. Form fields are inserted in the document but are much too small when viewed as a printed form.

I can provide specific examples of file paths or folder names if that becomes necessary.

Hi fellow PCReviewers

I'm having difficulties with my Word 2007 form. I have set it up to allow fields to be populated and have the sum total appear in another field. Unfortunately I am having no success in regards to the total automatically updating as data (numbers) are being populated.The F9 fails to update the total as well.

I have checked and double checked the properties and it all seems fine to me, ie, data fields all set to "calculate on exit", the total sum field is not set to "calculate on exit" and the calculation formula reads =Text1+Text2+Text3+Text4 i've even used =sum(Text1+Text2+Text3+Text4) without success.

As a footnote, I am able to open a former 2003 Word form and it does behave correctly. The form outlined above was created in W2007.

Can anyone help me please

Hi everyone!

I'm sure this is probably something very simple that I'm missing...

I am creating a document template for a specific document type.

I have two rich text controls added to a document via the developer tab.

The first is the document's number in a series of documents to be created. The second is the actual document title.

In the footer area, I want these to be shown in reverse - i.e. the document name, then the document's number, so I am making it very easy to check the number of the document when flicking through a physical folder.

I tried to do this with bookmarks and cross-referencing, but the bookmarks are not saved when you create a new document based on that template.

I tried with a macro, but after recording the macro, it didn't really do what I wanted.

Is there an easy way to get this working? If not, is there a way I can assign names to the rich text controls in my template to run a macro more efficiently?

We design our .rtf templates using Microsoft Word 2007. I have a need to print something in the same position on the last page of every report (in this case.. customer invoices).

Right now I have { if {NUMPAGES}>{PAGE} "Not Last Page" "Last Page" }. I am getting "Last Page" on every page.

Even with a reinstall Windows remembers settings in Office unless of course you reformatted the system.

Open a blank document then look under Tools, Options, Views Tab. Make sure the "Field Codes" is not checked. If it is, clear it and open your protected document to see if the problem has gone away. You'll most like need to save the changes on the blank document if you had to change the Options settings.

Hope this helps.

Recently upgraded my other computer operating Win 98 from Office 97 to 2000.
All is finally well with the settings after seemingly endless tweaks and changes except for one nagging problem.If I use Word as the email editor in Outlook (html), the "text" portion only of the email (not subject box-it is black text) is sent and arrives in a very light lime green color! You can barely read it.If I remove Word as the editor, then the text is in black--nice and clear.
I have spent hours playing with the settings in Word changing between automatic and black.I have checked and rechecked the Outlook settings.I can't shake this light lime green text with Word as the editor and I want Word as the editor--very frustrating..And something else important and related....
When you use Outlook to fax,(Symantec Fax Starter), the text arrives on all fax machines, but it is very "faint", however the subject and cover sheet are dark normal text, which makes me think it is being transmitted as light lime green, but showing up faint black as fax machines have only black shades.

A comment box will appear at the bottom, type in what you want, then click Close. The outlined word will know have intials after it, and if you hover the mouse over it, a comment box with whatevr you yped will appear above the word. You can double-click the initials to change the comment text.

Answer:update field A in form based on entry in field b

Welcome to the forum, before answering you question can I suggest some improvements to your database.
Currently you do not have any "Key", "Indexed" fields in your tables and there are no relationships set up between the tables.
Also do you really need the Archive Table?
The data looks like it has been exported in from a spreadsheet, relational databases work quite differently to spreadsheets, so to make the most of their advantages you need to correctly relate your Tables.
Your UserID Roster also has some disconnect between the Field Names and the actual data in them, particularly the Name and Type feilds.
In the Supervisor Table the Birthdate does not seem to have Translated correctly.

I'm doing a quick-and-(very)dirty design as a proof of concept. During this process I fat-fingered the word Description, as Ddescription. No problem, I know what it means, right. But it annoyed me, so I changed the underlying table (where the error occurred), deleted the control from the form, and added the (now correctly spelled) control.

However, every time I try and ruin the form it wants a value for the now non-existent field Ddescription. I simpy click-through, and the form runs fine. When I look at the available fields in the form's View query's Field List, it still shows Ddescription, and i seems to think it's coming from the underlying table.

Any ideas on how I can remove this phantom field? I can't find anything called "The_View_for_form_FooBar" anywhere, but I know it must exist somewhere...

Hi.

I have a form set up in a table and I would like to have the text fit into the cell and not go below the cell. I have set the maximum length of the field but this does not really work for me. I have set the row to an exact height so it does not expand. It does not limit the number returns. So, you can hit the return key the text disappears in the cell (goes beyond the length of the cell)

Setting the maximum length does not allow be to fill the cell completely. If you type all caps the maximum length maybe 100. If set to this then all lower case letters will only fill half the cell.

Is there a way to only allow the user to type in the fixed sized table cell and fill it up completely without the text disappearing beyond the border of the table cell using VBA or some function in Word?

Good evening,

was trying to find a piece of VBA code online for the following problem, found pieces for some single aspects, but cannot make it work. Have excel and word 2013.

I have a excel spreadsheets which is my master database. Every row (90 in total) lists one data set with up to 40 columns, but I will not need all informations. The first colum has a checkbox which I would like to use to chose which data set to work on to populate the word doc (working with multiple ticked would be great as well).

In addition I have multiple word documents, where I added text form fields which should then be filled with the informations from the excel sheet (I will not need all 40 columns for every word doc).

The code needs:

(1) To open the correct word document

(2) Fill in automatically the present date at a defined location in the word doc styled Jan 31st, 2018 with the correct st, nd or th.

(3) Fill in the specified data in the text form fields

(4) One column in my spreadsheet is a drop down menu, is there a difference if this content is transfered to the text form field?

(5) Some of the cells in the excel may be empty, how to make sure the transfer is not hicking-up?

(6) Save for every data set ticked a document (word and pdf) in a distinct location with some information from the data set contained in the name of the file.

I would be so greatful, If one of you can help here, guess for you this is done in a split of a minute...

'nother problem.

In my MOUS coursework, I had to create a form in Word. Included were some form fields that did simple calculations such as =sum(left).
I change the form field properties for these fields to Calculation and checked the Calculate on Exit checkbox. I protected the form and then opened it as a user document.
My exam prep book states that these will automatically calculate, but they don't.
I tried tabbing out of the fields, hitting F9, saving closing and reopening the doc etc.

The only thing that would make the calculations work is if I unprotect the form first, and this defeats the object of the protection. Also, it means that if I was to re-protect the form, all the data is lost.

Am I doing something wrong? The book's pretty detailed, but it doesn't mention this, it just says that the protected form will automatically calculate.

Thanks!

I don't know if this is possible.

I do know it isn't possible to insert a form field into a field code.

The functionality I'm trying to achieve is something like this:

{ SET _Check1 { FORMCHECKBOX } }​
Then, further down the document:

{ REF _Check1 { FORMCHECKBOX } }​
In other words, I want to use bookmarks with form fields. Can it be done?

Thanks in advance Steve
 

Answer:Solved: How do you make MS Word 2000 into book form???

If I understand what you actually want (and that is not guaranteed), the option you want is nothing to do with Word per se, but with the capabilities of your printer to print Page 1 on the first page, Page 2 on the reverse of the forst page etc (for spine binding).

For fold binding it gets more comples, but its more likely to be a funtion of your printer capabilities (if they exist) than Word.

For Word setup tips Google the following word string:

word book layout

That will give you more help that can be provided in pages of posts here I suspect.

Mhouser, if you are trying to "display" a value related to the Combo selection you can have thta value as an extra column in the combo and refer to it with simple VBA.
You should not populate a Field's actual value with that from the combo as that is duplication.
Can you tell me which one you are trying to do?

I support a software program that has a proprietary menu item when you right-click a calculated field. It has been this way for 10-15years and has worked in WinXP through Win10 with never an issue. This past week I had 3 different customers tell me that when they right-click one of these fields to access what is normally the Cut/Copy/Paste/ menu that also includes our menu item, they are now getting the Windows default cut/copy/paste/Right to Left Reading order/Show Unicode control characters/ etc menu. The only thing I can think of that they all have in common besides these are all Window 10 64bit pc's, is that they all have one update to Adobe Acrobat (17.012.20098).
I was able to resolve for a moment on two of these workstations by having the user go into Language/Advanced settings and actually selected "English (Unites States) from the "Override for Windows display language" even though that settings is implied by the "recommended". But after the pc was turned off over night and back to it the next day, the problem is back and that setting is still selected. All language and regional settings on all the pc's are defaulted to English/Unites States. I do not know what other avenue to go in. Could something hae been switched on or off in Windows (by this Adobe update perhaps?) that would make the context text menu switch to Windows text default right-click menu?

Any help is appreciated!

I downloaded a dictionary in notepad. I copied it to word. It is a list of words one per line. I was thinking of printing it. I need to wrap the text with one space between words and no hyphens. I can't find any help under word wrap. I searched for remove line break too but is only help for add line break. Does anyone know how I can make the text wrap? I've been able to make it into columns but not just have a single space between words. I think I could cut the # of pages almost in half if I could make it single spaces between words instead of columns.

Also, I'd really like to find and remove all words 2-4 letters long since they're in another file already, but this isn't so important.

Hi RevAnthony,
Welcome to TSG. Sounds like you have a corrupted normal.dot file. Make sure Word is closed and run a search for normal.dot. It is a hidden file, so you may have to set your search to show hidden files and folders. Delete any instances of it that you find. Re-open Word, and normal.dot will be recreated. Your menus should be back. Hope that helps.

Recently, the auto text facility I use for numbering pages (page X of Y etc.) in Word 2000 began to do something very weird. Although the page numbers appear correctly in the document on screen, when I print the document, they appear on paper as 1/1, 2/2, 3/3 etc. rather than 1/3, 2/3 etc.

This happened a couple of years ago when i was using word 2000 on Windows 98. Microsoft sent me a 'quick fix' solution in the form of service pack downloads, saying it was something to do with a faulty Microsoft update. It appeared to solve the problem. However, after working perfectly for the first few months on my new PC and O/S (Windows XP Professional) the Auto Text function in Word has reverted to its former weirdness.

Any tips or advice would be greatly, greatly appreciated. I'm pulling my hair out as my work means I need to use Auto Text a lot.

Trouble saving text in Word 2000
I use Word 2000 and Windows 7 Home Premium. I have been having increasing difficulty saving text in Word (file type: Word Document).

What often happens is that when I press F12 to save, the file name (say “Revolt”) vanishes and a backup file name appears in its place that look something like this: ~WRD.0078.tmp.

So I learned to watch out and delete this back-up file name when it appeared, which is often, and substitute the correct file name, “Revolt”. However, this is either no longer working—if it ever did. So I need to “save” the text several times over to get it to stick.

No error message appears.

My method now is to edit the text (“Revolt”), make a copy, save the original “Revolt”, and then delete it. I then call up the “Revolt” text again to see if the corrections have been saved. If not, I use the copy instead of the original and try saving again.

I hope this is clear.

The procedure is tedious and I would be grateful for any assistance. Just so you know, I am barely computer literate. I know little more than using my PC as a typewriter.

Hello all

I wonder if any of you could help me with a simple thing which has been driving me crazy for several hours.

I have a form which opens as 'Add' (for new record)
The first field is called 'Admin_name' and needs to be filled in before the user can move on (it's a combo box)
The next field is called 'Client' (set by Tab order)
The primary key field is an Autonumber which doesn't populate until data is added anywhere on the form (everyone knows this of course).

I have tried absolutely everything I can imagine to make this happen: validation settings on both table and form, functions, macros and code (some of which I copied from this forum and adapated to my own form).
When I get Debug to smooth out any errors (I am an beginner really), the code just doesn't work. It's as though the conditions I'm asking for are not met. I can't see why.
I've tried triggering the code with command buttons, via On_Exit, On_Lostfocus etc events on both fields...whatever I try things don't happen the way I want them to.

I wonder if the problem is that until a new record is created none of the conditions work.
Having said that, if I populate another field to activate the new record, when I move back up into the admin_name field and leave it empty, STILL nothing happens.

The only time anything happens at all is when I try to close the form (or move back to design view) when the bog-standard Access messages kick in OR ... Read more

Price is determined by Can Size as seen in the Can_Size table and SizePrice query. What I need is for when the user creates the record, the Price goes to DNP table AND/OR just the "Items Form".

Answer:Inheriting from another field in access form

The answer to your question is Yes.
However as the data has to be in table 2 then the User should not actually enter the data in the Form for table 1.
Ideally the User would "Select" the data from table 2 and the only thing stored in table 1 is the ID Key value from table 2.
The selection process would be made using a Combo drop down box.
Normally the data from Table 2 would be on display in a Main form and the data to be entered in table 1 would be entered and shown on a Sub Form, usually in continuous forms mode or Datasheet view.

I think this is a simple question, but not sure.

I want a field in a form to auto populate as the user types into it. For example, as they type "J", the first name that begins with "J" comes up. As they type "Jo" the first name with "Jo" comes up, etc. That part is basic. I am using a combo box and it works fine.

The next part is the tricky part. If the name does not appear in the list, is there a way to add it as a record in the related table?

Actually I created a simple table (only one field) just for this purpose, so if there is a trick on the field control level, to add the new entry to the combo box list that would be fine.

I don't think I can use a sub form because it won't give me the "auto populate as you type" part, right?

I also found some code on the MS help menus that may do it, but I am not a VBA programmer so I am not sure but here it is:

Most info will be entered into the Audit form named frmAudit. However, if the parts fail inspection another form is opened from frmAudit called frmNCM.
All the info entered into the NCM form needs to be linked back to the audit form. So, my NCM table has a field for AuditID.

The problem is I can not get the NCM form to open and automatically fill in the AuditID in the NCM form from the Audit form.

My current code:

Private Sub btnNCM_Click()
On Error GoTo Err_btnNCM_Click
Dim stDocName As String
Dim stLinkCriteria As String
stDocName = "frmNCM"

stLinkCriteria = "[AuditID]=" & Me.[AuditID]
DoCmd.OpenForm stDocName, , , stLinkCriteria
Exit_btnNCM_Click:
Exit Sub
Err_btnNCM_Click:
MsgBox Err.Description
Resume Exit_btnNCM_Click

End Sub
-------------------

Thanks for the help

See the webform located at http://jasonmod.bondwaresite.com/webform.php?ViewForm=5 which I created only to use the generated HTML from the browser source.

Can you view the source, look at the HTML and help me to craft the following:
Additional button [Calculate] to be located to the right of "Add 3% Electronic Payment Convenience Fee" and when clicked will calculate the product of "Amount" and "Add 3% Electronic Payment Convenience Fee" and place the newly calculated value in "Calculated Total". Database fields exist for all form fields and are named as seen in the source. I am assuming javascript is necessary to accomplish this. My javascript skill is very limited. I am also assuming there is no reason the javascript will not work if placed inline on the same page. "Add 3% Electronic Payment Convenience Fee" field and "Calculated Total" field should not be editable by user.

Notes:
This CMS system allows HTML to be used where needed. I can copy the HTML from this type of form (which is built using a site tool) and place the HTML into a new site page, edit the HTML so as to reformat the layout of the table, customize attributes such as placeholder text and other changes.

I hope this is enough information. If not, feel free to ask.

Thanks,
Jason
 

Answer:HTML & javascript form field value calculation

Hello All...

Another thought I guess is that javascript could be disabled in the user's browser. The more I consider this, the more I believe that I could do without storing the calculated total especially knowing that results could be skewed based on user's browser. Amount, Item Name and multiplier used in Fee are required. Others are not. However, I still wish to display the calculated total if the user wishes to click the [Calculate] button to see it.

Make sense?

Thanks,
Jason

HELP, HELP, HELP!

On the form that I have on my Access Database, I would like to add a field in the form so that I can do a search by ID # and hence pull up the information for the record matching this ID #.

I am somewhat familiar with Access. I would really appreciate any help that you could provide.

Thanks

Answer:Creating a search field in MS Access Form

Doesn't the form wizard automatically give you the id field to type into? Are you saying you want a dropdown box instead of the regular field-type box?

We are currently using QuarkXpress on our Mac for reports and invoicing. Our forms are set up in format and then with text fields. We can link the text fields together and tab thru the report filling in data. We want to switch this over to the PC now but don't want to deal with the cost of Quark 8 for Windows, $800. Any suggestions on software that isn't going to set me back $500 - $1000? Don't need fancy... just basic..we're small...just want to tab thru it and print it.
