Hi everybody.

I'm using MS Word 2000. I'm writing a document in which I want the sentence "write the relevant number" to appear in a field so as people using the document just type the number on top of the grey bit and don't touch the rest of the document, does anybody know how I can do it?

Thanks a lot in advance,
Jerónimo

Forms Toolbar Nov 8, 2004

Hi Jerónimo,

You can do this:

1. Display the Forms toolbar by opening the View menu, selecting Toolbars then Forms

2. Click on the first button on the Forms toolbar ([Text Form Field]) - a grey box will appear

3. Click on the [Form Field Options] button - the fourth on the Forms toolbar. The window "Text Form Field Options" will appear.

4. Write your rewritable text in "Default Text" and click on OK.

The the grey bit will be automatically replaced when the person writes the number.

==========================
In Spanish:

Ver -> Barras de herramientas -> Formularios

-> Campo con texto (aparece campo en gris)

-> Opciones de campos de formulario -> Texto predeterminado -> Aceptar
