I am filling in a NHS job application form that was constructed in word. The

form has check boxes that I am unable to check/uncheck. I have read that you

need to first protect the form before you can do this but I am unable to

select the protect icon from the forms toolbar. Any ideas?

    • Hi Will

      It sounds like the form has not been set up properly. You may be able to get

      it to open in "real" Word (and not within the browser). See

      How do I control how a Word document opens from the internet or an intranet?
