Default Creating Test With Answers

I need to create multiple choice tests with the answers next to the questions, but hidden until the test is completed.
The one taking the test can then click once and all the answers will be revealed (uncovered).

How can I go about accomplishing this task using MS Word 2000, and or Word 97?

Format your answers as hidden text.

Make your test a protected form using checkboxes for the answers. This is
what Word calls an "online form." Check this in help. For more about online
forms, follow the links at
http://addbalance.com/word/wordwebresources.htm#Forms or
http://word.mvps.org/FAQs/Customizat...nTheBlanks.htm especially Dian
Chapman's series of articles.

Write a couple of macros. The first would be an AutoNew macro that makes
sure that hidden text is not displayed.

The second would be one to show the answers. It would unprotect the form,
change the enabled property of each of the boxes to false so that answers
could not be changed. Then it would turn on display of hidden text and
reprotect the form without resetting the form fields. You might also have it
prompt for a name and save the test in a special folder with the student's
name. This one could be launched using a custom menu command or toolbar
button.

Or at least that is probably how I would approach the task.
