Word 2003 Form Fields


Ashley A.


I am using Word Form fields in a Word 2003 document. One Calculation Form
Field adds several form fields for a total.

My user wants a solution, possibly a check box, so that when the box is
checked, the Total in the Calculation Form Field is reduced by half. If the
box is not checked, the full total will display.

The solution cannot be a macro because of firm policies.

Does anyone have any creative ideas (non-macro) about how this could be

Thanks in advance.

You CANNOT do it WITHOUT using a Macro. Who ever it was in the firm that
said macros cannot be used needs the riot act read to them.

Well designed macros in Templates that are stored in the User or WorkGroup
Template folder are not detrimental to the operation of Word. They may as
well give you typewriters instead of computers if they are not going to let
you used the many of the capabilities of the software.

Hope this helps.

Please reply to the newsgroup unless you wish to avail yourself of my
services on a paid consulting basis.
