How to set up merge where you hit tab to fill in blanks.

I see the post from May 2006 but did not see an answer that fit.  I am a 
WordPerfect user accustomed to having "keyboard" merge documents as fill-in 
forms, such as a fax cover sheet, where the boilerplate sheet has "keyboard" 
fields and when I press "end field," I am taken to each blank line to fill in 
the to, fax number, file number, etc.  I'm having a heckuva time in Word 
because while I see the "Ask" fields and the "fill-in" files, I don't know 
what simple button I use to be taken to each field once I set up the 
boilerplate document containing the "fill-in" or "ask" fields.  Thanks.

Filling Subdesc1 with Size on matrix items

Putting a space character in empty cells is usually a bad idea. If you have formulas that use those cells, you may have to modify those formulas to treat those cells differently. But you could select the range you want and loop through the cells: Option Explicit Sub testme() dim myRng as range Dim myCell as range set myrng = selection for each mycell in myrng.cells if mycell.value = &q...
