    The State of Florida is using an MS Word Document as a test document that can have answers placed in it. Some "Computer expert" unlocked it so that everything moved with 'tab', or 'space' or 'answer' entry. How are the fields supposed to be designed so you can Lock some fields (questions), but allow entry in others(your answers)?

    How can anyone change that function in a state form?

    Thanks for at least reading this Vizier! They'll just have to correct my 'test' manually! it was the Dell Tech who must have done it!

    Welcome to the forum. You two are up late. ;)

    Right-click on a toolbar and select "Forms" from here click on the padlock button and try out your form again to see if it works. If you do not want it to be affected again then you will want to go to "Tools">>"Protect Document" and password protect the locking as well.

    Well Jim, You don't seem so 'little' experienced to me! It makes sense, but I don't have the form or Word on my home PC. The State office's tech guy didn't know this! So I'll have to copy & paste your response & send it off to them.
    Thanks, MarieDesi
