Hi Jeff,
Yes, provided you've only got one calculation to do. The formula is far from simple though!

Or using text formfields, with the document protected for forms, and an 'on exit' macro to do the calculation and insert the result
into the required cell (eg via another formfield). A suitable 'on exit' macro might look like: Sub TimeDiff() With ActiveDocument .FormFields("Text3").Result = _ Format(CDate(.FormFields("Text1").Result)  CDate(.FormFields("Text2").Result), "HH:mm") End With End Sub  Cheers macropod [Microsoft MVP  Word] "Doug Robbins  Word MVP" wrote in message ...
