Default Repeating checkboxes

I am creating a Word form with multiple copies containing REF fields in the
second copy so that when a user fills out the form field in the first page of
the form, those fields will be populated in the second. This form also has
checkboxes. Is there a way to link checkboxes from the first page so that
they are repopulated in the second page?

No simple way, unfortunately. Any solution will require a macro. You could have
a macro, for instance, that executes when the user leaves the checkbox and
writes the current state of the checkbox to other form fields. Here's a bit of
sample code to give you an idea

Sub UpdateFormCheckboxes()
Dim bCheckState As Boolean
Dim doc As Word.Document

Set doc = ActiveDocument
bCheckState = Selection.FormFields(1).CheckBox.Value
doc.FormFields("Check2").CheckBox.Value = bCheckState
End Sub

There are a number of ways to create and use clickable checkboxes in
documents / templates. Some require protected or locked forms, others do
not. Take a look at the Checkbox template available at
http://www.addbalance.com/word/downl...#CheckboxAddIn for an exploration
of these. It also has a macro to replicate the contents of a formfield
checkbox in place of a REF field.
