    MS Word Macro. Form Field Reference Question.

    Hi all,

    hopefully it is ok if I ask a question that is about MS word macros really quick...

    I have a couple tables in my word doc, and have a drop down menu to fill in one of the cells in one of the tables. I want to create a macro that will fill in another cell in a different table based on what the user selected in the drop down menu. I think know how I would write the macro and know that I could assign it to be executed once the user has selected the option in the dropdown menu, but am not sure how in word I would be able to reference which cell to put the results in.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks!

    Re: Quick Question About Word Macros

    Ok, this is the same problem, but I am a little further along, and have a more concrete question.

    I have a dropdown form (Dropdown1) and the destination formfield (Text1). Depending on what the user selects in the dropdown menu (construction, design, or planning) I want a certain text to appear in the destination formfield. Below is the code I have been experimenting with (I based it off some other code I was able to find online), but I continue to get the "Method or Data Method Not Found" for line 6.

    Any advice?

    Sub Test()
    Dim FF As FormFields
    Set FF = ActiveDocument.FormFields("Text1")
    Select Case ActiveDocument.FormFields("Dropdown1").Result
    Case "Construction"
    FF.Result = "Step 2"
    Case "Design"
    FF.Result = "Step 1"
    Case "Planning"
    FF.Result = "N/A"
    End Select
    End Sub
