Double click on the saved report to open it in Microsoft Word


Microsoft Word Developer

To enable the "Developer" tab in Microsoft Word go to File -> Options -> Customize Ribbon and check the Developer box


Click on "OK" and you should see the Developer tab in the Ribbon.

Click on the “Developer” option and place the cursor in the space that was saved earlier for the drop-down.

Click on the “Drop-down List Content Control”



A Drop-down box will be inserted in the selected space. Next, select “Properties”


The Properties box will open. Click on “Add” and type in desired field values.
