There's no good or easy way to do this, and unless you absolutely,
positively can't think of any way around it, I wouldn't try.

See http://www.word.mvps.org/FAQs/TblsFl...nesInForms.htm for
several ways to put lines in forms.

For a signature line, with the name or title printed below the line,
I'll suggest one of two choices:

- Insert a one-row, one-column table. Type the name or title inside
the cell, where you can center it, and then turn off all the cell
borders except the top one.

- Press Enter twice. In the first paragraph, set tab stops where you
want the line to begin and end. Type two tab characters; then select
the second tab and underline it. In the second paragraph, set a
centered tab stop under the center of the underline, and type a tab
character followed by the name.

Default How do you put words under underlines?

I frequently have to create signature lines with date lines beside them, and
I use something like Jay's method, but my clients prefer that the typed
signature and the word "Date" be left-aligned, so it works for me to keep
all this in the same paragraph:

After setting the tabs as required, tab three times, underline the first and
third tabs, press Shift+Enter, type the name, tab twice, type "Date," and
Enter.

My assumption was that the OP's question was about underlined blanks in
running text, with text under the blanks to indicate what goes in each one.
This is what I described as being more trouble than it is worth (though it
can be done, and I've done it).

Can you put that in little kid terms? I'm not that bright...

Email me offlist, and I'll send you a sample. I'm still not sure exactly
what you're asking, so it will be easier to send a sample of what I'm
talking about and you can see if it's what you want.
