    How do you stop word wrap in a Word form text field?
    Even if you limit the number of characters, pressing Enter causes a new line and alters the form layout. Any ideas.

    Yep. I wrote a dissertation once...okay, not a dissertation, but worthy of a look-see:

    Scroll down a bit to see the part about creating forms in tables. What I did not say (and should have) is that, while you cannot stop someone from typing, you can set the row height of a table to EXACTLY, and no matter what they type, it'll just disappear below the cell.....
