Using a 'Find Feature' with a protected document


S

SForst

Is there a way to enable a 'find' or 'search' feature when
using a protected form? The functionality that I am
looking for is that we would like to still have
our 'Controlled Forms' and still use text form fields for
the users to enter their data in. Then we would like to
functionality to search through all of the different text
form fields of a document of this type.

Can this be achieved using the FORMS tools or is there
another tool that CAN achieve this desired result?

Thanks,
S. Forst

Find will only work if the document is unprotected;
theoretically, you could use a macro to unprotect, find,
reprotect.

Another possibility would be to use a macro loop through the
Words collection of each formfield's range, stopping when a
match is made.
