Default Adding table lines to protected form

I have a form in Word 2003 that uses form fields (text fields, drop downs and check boxes), which is arranged in a table.



Some of the questions in the form require the user to populate a table (which contains all 3 kinds of fields) within this greater 'form table'. Currently these 'tables' are just cells within the one big table, but I have toyed around with nested tables as well.

What I would like, is for the form to contain 2 or 3 rows within these tables, with the user able to add lines if needed. The thing is, the number of rows needed will vary from user to user, and could be one row or could be 100+. I need to print these forms off, so I obviously don't want there to be 100 empty lines being printed off, but I also don't want the user to be limited.

Am I able to have a protected form that allows the user to duplicate rows??

I have considered protecting only certain sections of the form, and leaving these tables unprotected, but because the tables contain drop down boxes and the like, these would not be functional.

I've done more googling than I dare admit on this, and haven't found an answer yet. Can anyone help me, please?

Razzberri,
I am facing the same scenario as you and am thinking that a Macro . Have you found any answers yet? If I get any insights from my network of people, I will be sure to let you know!

No, I could not make any macros work, but then I'm very new to macros. I wasn't able to find any other answer and gave up. I just protected the form and added instructions on how to unprotect it if new rows are needed - not the best solution!

So please do let me know if you figure something out. Good luck!
