MS Word #2: Creating Interactive Dynamic Forms in Microsoft Word

, , No Comments
Ever thought of creating an interactive form in Microsoft Excel? With clickable radio buttons, dropdowns to select from a predefined set of options, an image file picker to attach/import a passport photo, a calendar that pops up to let the user pick a date and many other useful features. Today is your lucky day.

You can watch the video tutorial here:

All these amazing tools are housed in the Developer menu. So the first task you have to do is enable/activate the Developer menu. Go to File, Options, Customize Ribbon and tick the checkbox beside Developer.

In the Developer menu, you will see the controls that make interactive forms possible -- from radio buttons to checkbox to calendar to picture frame and many more.

Watch the video to see me do a comprehensive live demo. And I included a bonus on how to make what the user type in one part of the document appear in other parts of the document. This is a neat trick for creating legal or contractual documents. You ask for the other party's name and that name appears in all the necessary parts of the documents. And once you change the name in the first part, it changes in all the other parts.
