Default connecting within a form

When creating a form for a template, I want to be able to check a box and
then have that action insert information that relates to that box. I have
tried the drop down option but the information is to long to be typed into
the dialog box. EX: I have 20 check boxes each one has different information
depending on the box number which needs to link to corresponding information.

ALL help is appreciated!

Hi ?B?QmVja3k=?=,

then have that action insert information that relates to that box. I have

This would require a macro solution. Best would probably be to use a plain text
field. Entering the field would trigger a macro that displays a UserForm (custom
dialog box). This can contain a dropdown. The user makes a selection and the
contents of the dropdown are then written to the text field. For the basics of
this approach see
