I have no problems in excel create a CheckBox and being able to use it but in word I can create it but unable to actual tick and un-tick. I have looked at the code in properties and it states active but when I return to the word doc and try to put a tick into it it always seems to remain in edit mode.

What do I need to do so I can use the CheckBox in Word as I can in excel?

Regards, Matt

Hi Matt

If you open the "Forms" toolbar, you will see a padlock icon. This needs to be clicked to protect the form you have created and allow user input.

Lookup in help for "text form field" which will give you some tips and pointers.

Be aware though that protecting the form (to allow the checkbox to be enabled), disables the entire document - so users will not be able to type into the document. If this is desireable, you will need to include some text boxes.
