    I have built a protected form in Word 2007 but the eventual user wants the facility to extend the number of rows in certain tables as the 'standard' amout I have set out may not be sufficient for their needs which can vary from form to form. I knew I would have to utilise a macro to do this but this is new territory for me so I did some Googling and found a suitable macro script on another forum (see script at end of this post). I tested this out on a dummy document using a keyboard shortcut and it worked fine but when I use the macro on the proper form I get a Runtime error, even though the macro does add the extra row. When I check the debug info, the line oFld(i).Result = "" is highlighted as being the problem.

    I have added the error and debug info below, along with the macro script.

    Hoping someone can shed some light on this for me. :)


    Sub AddARow()
    Dim i As Integer
    Dim bProtected As Boolean
    Dim sNewRow As String
    Dim oFld As FormFields
    sNewRow = InputBox("Insert New Row", "New Row", "No")
    If Left(UCase(sNewRow), 1) <> "N" Then
    'Unprotect the file
    If ActiveDocument.ProtectionType <> wdNoProtection Then
    bProtected = True
    ActiveDocument.Unprotect Password:=""
    End If
    With Selection
    Set oFld = Selection.Range.FormFields
    For i = 1 To oFld.Count
    oFld(i).Result = ""
    End With
    If bProtected = True Then
    ActiveDocument.Protect _
    Type:=wdAllowOnlyFormFields, NoReset:=True, Password:=""
    End If
    End If
    End Sub
