Default Check box macro

Hi! I'm using Word 2003. How do I get text boxes to work such that when I
double click one, it automatically toggles between checked and unchecked,
like in the Microsoft Word Fax templates?

Right now, when I try to use the CheckBox Macrobutton, when I double click
on it, it pops up Form Field Options window.

Thanks!

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.
