I think this should be a quick piece of work for someone who knows what they are doing. When you bid please indicate your extensive knowledge of MS Word forms or PLEASE don’t bid. I would like to have a 1 day or less turn around on this.
You will need to have a strong understanding of Word 2003, Word 2000 and how to create and modify forms. This is a Word form created in Word 2003. It has an excel spreadsheet that I believe was created in Excel 2003 but I’m not sure, attached to it. This might be a one field issue or it may need to be recreated in Word 2000 instead of 2003.
************Very important – for testing purposes please change the sending and validation e-mail addresses so the address validates to my e-mail address, and not the clients, while testing. Once the form tests out we will change it back to his e-mail address. ************************************
The client set up a word form in Word 2003. He sends it to his hotel customers. They are supposed to fill in every field and then click the “validate now” bar at the bottom. Since he rebuilt the form in Word 2003 many of his customers hit the “validate now” bar and nothing happens. When I run the form in Word 2003 I have no problem validating but when I run it in any other word like 98 or 2000 the form will not validate for me either. I am ASSUMING that he has included a form feature that word 2003 uses but older versions do not.
[url removed, login to view] we can’t control which versions of Word the hotels use, I need this form to work completely, validate and send the e-mail to the appropriate party in Word 2000 and 2003 and 98 if possible. Then I need it to populate the data in the excel spreadsheet. I imagine it should be able to be made to work in 2000 and 2003 but 98 is so old I don’t know. Please let me know what you think.
[url removed, login to view] it can’t be made to work in 98 I need to know why so I can pass it on to my client.
There are the three documents that make up this package:
1) Instruction sheet on how to use the form that is sent out to the hotels.
2) RFP Form hotel is to fill out, which is the form itself.
3) Excel Form that is populated by certain data from the Word form. He just points the cursor to a designated spot on the form and it automatically exports the preselected data.
[url removed, login to view] client also wants to know if there a way to lock with absolute certainty Word & Excel forms.
