Default Word Forms Problems

Hello,

I have created an application form using Word 2003 that I want to have as an attachment for my website and it all works and looks great on my PC. The problem I have is when I send it (or save it a shared area) and open the form on another person's PC some of the fields and tables are moved about and are not in the right place. I have made changes on the other PC and saved it, but then when I open it again on my PC it has similar errors! I have tried looking at it at home using Word 2007 and it all looks fine then sending myself a copy at work and again its all over the place. Can anyone please suggest what the problem might be as I have spent a lot of time on this already and really need this to be downloadable and able to fill out electronically and emailed back.

Thanks in advance

Could you attach a copy of the document for us to work with - it'll be easier for us to understand that way!

One thing to look at for the meantime is the page size - is it possible that on one computer you have the default paper size set to A4, and on another it's Letter? If you have used the full space between margins, then this would caus it to go all wierd on a computer with different default settings!

Thanks for looking into this. I have tried your idea with the page sizes and both settings in word are exactly the same. I have also sent this to a few other people in the school and they have come back with different responses as in its ok and it has the problem. So I have attached the file for you to look at and I hope you can solve this. Will this file go live? Mind you I do want to put this on a website so I suppose thats ok. Another thing to mention is that its is only pages 3 and 4 where the fields seem to move about, pages 1 and 2 are always ok. Good luck
