Hello, everyone!
The problem here is that I do not know how these fields are called. They are the ones that appear in grey color in the Word document, in which you can type text and it continues enlarging as much as the text does.

Thanks a lot!

They should be called "Fields" indeed Jul 11, 2005

but I have only german Word, so maybe the english name is a different one.

Use the command "Form field" or "Field" from the menu "Insert".

The easiest way would be, however, to search in the Word help function, as there you will find the exact description for what to do in YOUR Word version.

Regards
Jerzy

I think you may be talking about a text box. It is on the Insert menu, bottom set after Picture and Drawing on WordXP. I have to say this, because sometimes, Microsoft changes things around.
