    You can create a form in Microsoft Office Word 2007 by starting with a template and adding content controls, including text boxes, date pickers, and drop-down lists. Other people can use Office Word 2007 to fill out the form on their computer.

    To create a form follow these steps:
    1. Set up Word for creating forms
    Click the Microsoft Office Button
    • Then click Word Options
    • Click Popular
    • Select the Show Developer tab in the Ribbon check box
    • Then click OK


    2. Open a template or a document on which to base the form
    • Click the Microsoft Office Button
    • Then click New
    • Under Templates, click My templates
    • Double-click Normal, and then click Template or Document under Create New
    • Click the Microsoft Office Button
    • And then click Save As
    • n the Save As dialog box, give the new template or document a file name, and then click Save


    3. Add content controls to the form
    Design the form by sketching a layout first, or use an existing form as a guide. In your form, you can add content controls, tables, and other graphics elements. On the Developer tab, in the Controls group, click Design Mode, and then click where you want to insert a control. You can do any one of the given options.

    4. Set or change properties for content controls
    Each content control has properties that you can set or change. For example, the Date Picker control offers options for the format you want to use to display the date.
    • Right-click the content control that you want to change
    • Click Properties, and change the properties that you want


    5. Add instructional text to the form
    Instructional text can enhance the usability of the form you create and distribute. You can change the default instructional text in content controls.
    To customize the default instructional text for your form users, do the following:
    • On the Developer tab, in the Controls group, click Design Mode
    • Click the content control where you want to revise the placeholder instructional text
    • Edit the placeholder text and format it any way you want
    • If you want the content control to disappear when someone types in their own content to replace your instructions in a Rich Text control or a Text control, click Properties in the Controls group, and then select the Remove content control when contents are edited check box
    • On the Developer tab, in the Controls group, click Design Mode to turn off the design feature and save the instructional text

    Do not select the Contents cannot be edited check box if you want form users to replace the instructional text with their own text.
