Microsoft Word Insert Feature

By wsmm ·
I need to be able to turn of the insert feature of Microsoft Word for certain documents. I'm currently creating computer based documents (boiler plates/templates) of manual documents. These are basically a fill in the blanks document. I need to switch the document from an insert mode to an over write mode automatically. Most of the peopel using the computers to create these documents are not computer savy so I need this as seeming as possible. Sample line included below.

In this example I would want them to be able to type their name where the undeline is, replacing the line, not extending it. Also How cold I make the new text go in as bold underline, or just underline.

You really want to use Forms instead of turning insert on and off. open word, press F1 and then go to the anwer wizard tab and type "forms" press enter. select the first topic in the list, which is "Create forms that users complete in Word" and then follow the directions. it is really easy and gives a professional looking fillable form. you can also validate what the users enter and include check boxes, radio buttons etc. As an added bonus, you can send the information collected by the form to a database or spreadsheet.
