    Enabling macro tick box in MS Word 07

    Hi im filling out a form which has macro tick boxes, however for some reason they don’t seem to tick when I click the box at all. It’s driving me nuts, iv searched online to see if there’s anything im doing wrong or need to enable but I can’t find anything helpful.

    The guidance mentions enabling Active X and macros for the form, but im not sure how/where to do this. Iv tried to do this form on 2 different computers, so frustrating. The form im filling out in for an internship iv literally done the whole form, but now its on to the equal opportunities part and it requires it to be filled out by the check boxes!!

    Any ideas or tips would be greatly appreciated!

    also i should note, whenever i open the document i do not get any sort of warning that any Active X or Marcos are trying to run. Hm could it be the form hasnt got any?

    Have you tried dbl clicking ?

    Its an form iv gotten emailed to me through uni. Is the any chance i can email it you to double check that it is not me but the form, iv tried everything! - No security box pops up to inform me theres macros in the form which is leading me to think theres something either wrong with the form or the compatatbilty.

    Iv tried it on both Windows 7 2007 word, and Mac Office 2011!

    Actually you can get it from the website, i can PM you a link if you like?
