I have created a simple word document. I created a drop down box using the
Forms toolbar. I entered the list of items I wanted the drop down bar to
show in the Drop Down Form Field Options. When I exit, I just have a

click on to choose the other other entries. There is no drop down box arrow,
just a gray field with my first entry. What am I doing wrong? Thank you.

I know how to get the drop down box on my form, I just don't understand how
to input the choices so the drop down works like it's supposed to. I have
done this on InfoPath but I cannot embed it in an email other than an
attachment. I did a copy and paste of the drop down boxes I made in InfoPath
to Word and I can embed it into an email. The only thing with this is that
choices that are made on the form do not lock when placed in the email. I
don't understand the whole VBA part. I have been all over the internet
trying to find answers and came up with nothing. I would appreciate the help
from anyone who knows about this.
