Creating mandatory fields in forms on Word 2010 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi, 

    I am trying to work out how to create mandatory fields on forms in MS Word 2010. 

    I have used development tools and design mode to create text fields and am trying to learn how to use Macros to make the fields mandatory. It is for a referral form in a charity autism support service that schools need to complete and keep leaving gaps etc. I am trying to learn this from scratch and so idiot proof guidance would be really useful!

    Since this issue is more related to development, I've moved this thread to Word for Developers forum.
