Default Drop down menu does not drop down

Word 2002. Hello. Using the View/Toolbars/Forms menu to insert a drop down
menu, I can add items to the menu but I cannot get them to display on the
Word doc and there is no "pointer" to click that will cause the drop down
menu to...drop down. Any suggestions and thanx!

You have to protect the form to make the fields operate. Either click
the lock icon on the Forms toolbar, or use Tools Protect Document
and choose Forms.
