    If you take for instance: a tax form such as the inland revenue what’s the best way to us it as a template in msword. I tried scanning as a .bmp and putting it in as a background
    But cannot get the A4 size to come up correct . I want to type in a template on screen and put he actual document in the printer and have he type come out in the right place.
    Any Ideas please.
    Regards ALAN

    If you can get the scanned form, I would cut off whatever margin you can from the resulting bitmap, put the bitmap in as a watermark inside the header. On the document itself, open the forms toolbar and insert the appropriate form fields so that the printed text will appear inside the "field".

    Sound like a lot? Maybe, maybe not. Might be really easy!

    If I've completely lost you, let me know. I'll send you an email on how to create electronic forms in Word.
