I no longer have access to MS Word so I can't experiment (just downloaded Libre Office). Also, I know that this is pretty basic stuff so I'm certain that the answer is simple and I shall look daft for not knowing it (never worried me so far).
Someone has created a form and has set up the page as if it is in 4 columns (if done on a spreadsheet it would physically be 4 columns).
Column 1 - will have pretyped text such as NAME / TEL etc.
Column 2 - is all blank but users will type, for example, their name.
Column 3 - has more text such as REFERENCE / OTHER REFERENCE etc.
Column 4 - is all blank and where users will type, for example, a reference.
The separation between Col 1 and 3 has been created by using the TAB key and/or the SPACEBAR.
The creator wants to anchor the preset TEXT in Col 1 & 3 so that these headings do not move when people type too much info into Col 2 & 4. I don't know how/if Col 2 & 4 are defined.
Is it possible to do this or better to start again and create the form using proper formatting (which I hope sopmeone will explain).
I'm off to have a try on Libre Word but have so little experience that I don't even know if it will read 365 WORD DOC files.
