I have Office for Mac 2008.

I have a template I use for school and I need to use drop down menus i've created in a word document.

They work absolutely fine when i use them in Office 2007 (for Windows), but as soon as I try and use it in Word 2008 for Mac it just doesn't want to play along.
It doesnt register as a drop down.
When I tried to create a drop down in Word (Mac), I couldnt get the drop down menu to register properly so I could use it.

So im left half assed right now.. any ideas?


If you need anymore information, please ask, im happy to provide more info.

What are you using to create the dropdowns? If you are creating them as form elements (from the forms toolbar), then you need to "protect" the form before you can use it as a form.

(Protect Form icon on the form toolbar, at the very right hand side by default.

Yeah, I tried that, but then when I tried to edit the document on a windows Machine.. It just locked me out.. of EVERYTHING. I couldn't edit anything at all.

Mac Office 2008 is still a relative POS. Even after all the updates. Sigh...

Is there any VBA code behind these menus?
