I have created a simple form in Word 2007 with maybe 2 or 3 fields across and
3 or 4 fields down, but my problem is I would like to be able to lock the
field positions in place on the screen. When I type in a field, the field to
the left moves. I need to lock the position. Can this be done.

Most forms designers put form fields in table cells of a fixed dimension.

Good Morning,
I had a feeling that this should be done using tables, but I can't figure
out how to create a table in a form. Any help?

A form is just a document like any other - though protected to allow only
the fields to be accessed. If you unprotect the form you can insert a table
from the Insert tab. Then move your fields to the cells of the table. When
you are happy protect the form again.
