Word Document 10 years 5 months ago #15122

Hey,
I need to create a word document that the person using it will be able to add data but not manipulate it. It will need to be printable. Has anyone done something like that before??
I thought of a template but then they could alter the page, a feature that i don't want.
Waiting for suggestions...
Cheers

A possibility is making an editable .pdf. The user could enter their information into the editable portions of the file, and print it out in the template that you want. The Acrobat reader won't allow them to save their inputted information, though, so maybe this isn't exactly what you're looking for. I'm not sure if there is a similar feature with Word or OpenOffice.

You can create a form in Word and then protect the form elements thus allowing users to enter data, but preventing them from making changes to the document structure. "View/Toolbars/Forms" will display the Forms toolbar which contains the components required to create your form.
