Hi I want one of my word document to show the input box when i open the word document.

Once I have entered this text, it should be entered at certain place in word document.

So for example

It is important to distinguish between "opening" and "creating" a document based on a template. These are distinct actions and the latter is preferred.

Take a look at the Ask Field Tutorial. It has sample documents showing how ASK and FILL-IN fields work in documents and templates together with vba code to assist in implementing these. It shows the distinction between opening a document and creating a new document, as well. This was written about 10 years ago and works with Word 2007 and Word 2010 as well as earlier versions.

Otherwise, you could use a UserForm. If you are asking for a lot of information on opening, this might be a better option than fields. When you have multiple questions pop up, it gets annoying.

Create a Userform
