    There must be a way to fix the text field lengths in Word for Windows 2002, so that the form does not change/collapse when an entry is made with fewer letters than are allowed in the field.

    Can someone help me with this?

    My sister had the same problem and she got around it by putting the fields in tables. She then set the tables as transparent.

    Hope this helps,

    Your sisters method, while tedious, did work.

    Thanks :)
