Default Multiple selections from Drop Down Lists

Hi! How's it going?

I'm currently working with Word 2007 and inserting Drop Down Lists within a
template to allow the rapid creation of Policy and Procedures documents. How
can I allow users of the Drop Down list to make multiple selections e.g. both
'Equal Opportunities Act 1984' and 'Disability Discrimination Act 1992'?

Or should I be looking at another way of doing this?

All advice welcome.

The short answer is that you can't do this (at least not without a lot of
programming).

I suspect that you would be better served by looking at userforms than
protected Word forms.Userforms are a lot more elegant method of gathering
and inserting data in a doument.

See Word MVP FAQ - Userforms http://word.mvps.org/FAQs/Userforms.htm and
http://gregmaxey.mvps.org/Populate_UserForm_ListBox.htm for some specific
examples that you may be able to modify to your requirements.
