Default Form field selection allows entry into form text box

Hello

I am using word 2003 and I am creating a form using form fields.

I have a form dropdown box with a number of values representing Assets. One of the values I have is "Multiple Assets".



What I want to do is when the "Multiple Assets" value is selected I want a Text forms field option to appear so I can manually type which assets the form relates too.

Is this possible, and can someone explain in detail what i need to do?

Many thanks in anticipation

Creating a dependent formfield is a fairly complex undertaking. For an idea of what is involved, see:
