Solved: creating a line in a form in word 2003
hello all

I am having trouble with something that seems like it should be so simple! I need to recreate a form for my boss that she only has in hard copy. I am using a table and removing the borders so that everything is straight in the form that people will need to fill in. I need to put a place for people to write on, like a line, and each cell will need text then a line. I tried using the underscore but it comes out looking spotty, meaning there are spaces between each underscore.

there has to be a better way of doing this? I have never recieved any formal education with regards to word 2003, so all I know I've learned by trial & error but I can't seem to figure this one out.

I can't access photobucket or anything like that, so I can't add a screenshot. Basically it needs to look like this:

Name:_____
Date:_____
Task:_____

^ that was done with underscores but they don't show up nicely in word 2003.

thanks for your attention, all!

Hi,

This is a simple one if you are using tables to layout your form.... just add the border to the bottom of the cell where the text will be entered.

I have attached an example of this if that helps.....
