Word 2007 and Using Fill-In Field RRS feed

  • Question

  • What is the correct file format for Word 2007 (.docx or doct or docm) when using the form field FILL-IN in a form for the info to kick off with the pop-ups.  We are having issues as this was developed as a Word 2007.  We are thinking about moving this to a content (XML) but want the fill-in to work in the meantime.  It doesn't kick off the pop-ups when opened right now.  It was a .dot before?

  • Hi,

    Based on my research, a Word file contains Forms With Fill-in Fields should be saved as a Template. Since it is Word 2007, so I think the file should be save as .dotx format.
