Types of forms
Explanation
You might want to create questionnaires or display information in a specific format.
Forms help you perform these tasks. You can use Word to create three types of forms:
 Web forms are distributed on the Web. Users view and complete Web forms in a
browser.
 Printed forms are completed on paper.
 Word forms are viewed and completed in Word. They can be sent to users
through e-mail or posted on a network.
Form components
As shown in Exhibit 4-1, a form consists of labels and data. Labels describe the data
being stored. For example, “Employee name” is a field label, and its corresponding data
is “Jamie Morrison.”
