Default VBA to show/hide tables

Think I accidentally posted this in the wrong forum:


I want to set up a multi-purpose form in Word.

Is it possible to set up some radio buttons to hide/show tables?

Ideally, I want one section which will remain constant at the top/bottom, but the middle section will be one of maybe three or four tables, only one of which will be shown?

I am pretty familiar with VBA in Excel, but Word seems to lend itself more to this project.

Thanks


Chris.

Hi Chris,

You cannot effectively hide tables is Word. The most you can so is set their conent font as hidden. Even this, however, prevents neither the display nor the printing of the tables - both of those are at the mercy of how the user has Word configured.

Thanks.

Guess I'll have to stick with Excel then.
