Text form fields...


Ok, I admit it, word is NOT my forte. However, a client has asked me to create a protected form for her. No problem. However, it's an Invoice form, and I'd like it to automatically fill in the invoice number on the tearaway slip when she types it in the main document. (text1 is where the initial invoice number is placed) is there any way, short of a macro, to get it to do this?

RE: Text form fields...

Make the default value of the text box on the tearaway slip equal to Textbox1

Assuming Textbox1 is where she inputs the Invoice Number and Textbox2 is where she wants the number on the tearaway:

In design mode right click on TextBox1, Click on View Code, Type TextBox2.value = TextBox1.Value


Private Sub TextBox1_Change()
TextBox2.Value = TextBox1.Value

End Sub
