We have a 2013 Microsoft Office Word Enabled Document that we want to e-mail to clients to complete (it is a questionnaire) with Check Box Content Control to allow clients to put ticks in relevant boxes.


However if the clients use Microsoft Office 2003 the document will open but removed the Check Box Content Control.


So we are wanting to create a document that will work in any version of Office and allow the Check Box Content Control/User to click on a box and a tick appear, they save the document then e-mail it back to us.


It is not essential it is in Word.


Has anyone got any ideas?

For Office 2003, you will have to create the document using a forms field, as checkbox content control won't work in 2003.
