Fillable forms in Word are useful in business-to-business relationships, where you can count on all recipients having Microsoft Office available. They are simpler to set up than a web form (no server required). Since the data persists in the document, they don't have to be filled out in one session.
A fillable form is locked down so that the user can simply tab between fields and type data. We refer to this as a Tab'n'Type interface.
Though this sample does not contain macros, we can easily program data validation for fields where needed.
Fillable forms in Word should almost always be created in tables, as in this sample. The logo and address are hand-optimized so they print razor-sharp, even though the entire file is only 115kb in size!
