Word 2003 Forms/Drop down boxes

By d.j.elliott ·
I've been asked to create a form in MS Word. They want to be able to choose a plant location and then have an address box be automatically populated. Is there a way to capture the variable chosen in a drop down box and use it in this way? My co-worker is a VB programmer, but he only knows how to write VB code that will create a Word document, but not how to pass a variable to VB and then pass back data based on that variable?

You're best off

To create the form in Excel or Access. There you can create pivot tables or relationships and macros that will do the automated population. Word doesn't handle that kind of thing as far as I know.

You can use a tool specifically to create forms. That might be your best choice.

Good luck!
