Join Gini von Courter for an in-depth discussion in this video Using tables to design a form, part of Word 2007: Forms.
In the last movie, we saw how you can use an existing Word form or a Word…form that you download from the Microsoft Office site to give you a jumpstart…on creating a form.…But sometimes you have either a manual form that you need to use that the…electronic copy doesn't exist anymore, you've just been printing them for years,…or you have a brand-new endeavor, the form doesn't exist and you can't find a…template on the Microsoft site that looks like what you'd like.…In that case, you'll start from scratch creating your form using tables to lay it out.…Well, not quite from scratch, because before we start creating our form and…laying it out, we should have an idea of the kind of data that we want to…collect in our form.…
So, we will make a list of that data.…If you know exactly what goes in the form on your own, go ahead, and make the list.…If on the other hand, there are other people involved in this effort, run the…list by them and make sure they agree with it as well.…I want to tell you just a little bit about what this form is for.…
