To create a questionnaire in Microsoft Word, view the Developer tab, and add content to the form. Set properties for content controls, and restrict editing on the form.
- View the Developer tab
Open Microsoft Word. Click the File tab, then click Options. Next, click Customize Ribbon; under that, click Main Tabs. Select the Developer checkbox, and click OK.
- Create questions
Type in the questions and sections for the questionnaire. Include any instructional text for the reader.
- Add content to the form
Turn on Design Mode by click on the Design Mode button in the Controls section of the Developer tab. Pick your desired selector from the Controls section or from the Legacy Forms button in that section. Selectors include radio buttons, check boxes, drop down lists and date pickers. Right-click on the selector, click OptionButton Object, and then Edit to edit the element and add in the text for the option.
- Set the properties
Set or change the properties of the content controls. Right-click on the selector or other content control, and choose Properties. In this chart, you can group buttons together so that only one of them can be selected at a time. You can also set other values.
- Restrict editing
To prevent the readers from editing the document more than just responding to the questions, click the Restrict Editing button on the Developer tab. Choose "Yes, start enforcing program."
