Default Dynamic form with sections available as needed - Word 2010

In Word 2010, I have a questionnaire with locked fields for clients to complete. One section repeats six times so you can enter up to six products. I would like to make it dynamic so if you have only two products, the other four sections aren't visible and aren't taking up space but if you have eight products you have the option to complete additional sections.

Is this possible?

Wouldn't it make more sense to have just one section and add others as required? As you are going to need macros to do either you can save this questionnaire as a template and store the section as an autotext entry in the template and insert it as often as required.

I would suggest also that you use content controls for the 'fields'.

Word 2013 has Repeating Content Controls so this could be done without macros but in Word 2010 you would need macros to do this.

Is this questionnaire going to external users or will it always be done inhouse on Word 2010 machines? Is Adobe Acrobat a better application for this job?
