Default Drop-down Macro to show different display / value

Hi all



I am hoping you can help. I am not the most technical when it comes to Macros and VBD etc.

I have a form I designed, with a drop-down menu in Word 2010. By 'drop down menu' I mean I have inserted a 'Drop Down List Content Control'. I want a different output / display to the input / value?

As an example, I'd like people to select a food, and it output the type?

So, the drop-down contains Apple, Steak, Cod but when they select it, it outputs to Fruit, Meat, Fish?

I am not sure how to create a macro to do this. I have seen some of them, but they never work for me!

If anyone can help, thank you!

And please treat me as a newbie to Word, hand-holding would be welcome

You are not going to be able to do this with just a Content Control, you will need programming. If you are going to do that, you might as well just use a UserForm.
You can have the results displayed in your document be different from the selections in the UserForm's dropdown.
