Manipulating text in a drop down option

by troyhaggard / June 25, 2013 3:30 AM PDT

Hello, new to the website and in desperate need of help; is there a possibility of manipulating text once the text has been added as an option in a fillable form drop down? I am trying to create three drop down options and I need each option to contain text where in there are fill in blanks that may be populated after chosing the respective drop down. Any help is much appreciated! - Troy

I apologize this is regarding Word 2003 software. Thank you. - Troy

Since Word 2003 has VBA

Then sure, yes you can either talk with your programmer about this if you don't write your own macros. So the answer is yes but a course in VBA doesn't fit in this small box.

My question is why a Word 2003 form. Wouldn't that mandate that all the users have such?

Some of us don't grab the newest thing out there. I am still using Word 2000 and drive a 20 year old vehicle. I do admit that if I need some one to have access to such a form document, I would probably use my new PDF professional software.

Good choice.

While the office does have some Office 2000 license in reserve, I understand as I also keep cars around a long time. But PDF is a much better choice as it's like issuing a form that can only be filled out in your 1993 Chrysler LeBaron.
