We are all used to filling out forms of various types. Once you begin using the forms feature in Word, you will never go back to hard copy forms again. Forms are intended for online use as a method of collecting information. The recipient is only able to tab and type through the fields with the remainder of the document restricted. Once collected, the data can be exported to Excel for analysis or printed into pre-printed forms. In this session expert speaker Mitzi Gibson Katz will use tables as the structure for designing a more professional-looking form and will discuss pitfalls to avoid.
