Default Restrict Editing but Allow New Table Rows to be Added

Hi,

Do I need a macro or other fix to allow users to freely add/remove table rows (hopefully that auto-populate with form controls and sequential numbering where they are necessary) WITHOUT having edit access to other cells in my table?

I created a form in a Word Table in which I want front-end users to only be able to edit the cells for which there are form controls. The front-end users are instructed to complete the form and print it, and the rest of the (restricted) cells are to be completed via manual write-in by back-end users in the field. I want the front-end users to be able to freely add, insert, or delete table rows, and it'd be great if any newly added rows already had all of the required form controls and the sequential numbering of the table.

I've tried Restricting Editing to ensure users only enter information in the correct cells, although this does not allow users to add or remove rows.

If anyone knows of a fix, the help is very much appreciated. Thanks!!

What kind of "form controls" are you using (formfields, content controls)? If content controls, what kind of editing restrictions are you using.

Note: There have been numerous other threads on this board discussing the automatic addition of table rows. Did you look at them?

PS: Please don't post the same question in multiple forums. I've deleted your other thread.

I'm using content controls (mostly rich text fields and combo boxes). I've applied read-only editing restrictions and selected the content controls and given everyone exceptions to allow them to freely edit the form.


I played with formatting restrictions to try to find a way to ease up add/delete table rows (no successes). Also tried Filling in Forms editing restriction but had the same problem but I liked the "highlights" that the read-only with exceptions gave the users.


Thanks for the reply and sorry for the flubs. First time poster and beginner/intermediate level Word User; I wasn't sure which category the post fit. Though I did multiple searches on related topics to no avail at my original post, with your wording/suggestion I found another of your posts with a link to some VBA language from Graham Mayor http://www.gmayor.com/word_vba_examples_2.htm. I will try VBA (first time) and see how it goes though our two scenarios are different. If you or anyone else has further tips, please let me know. Thanks!
