How to Develop Surveys in Word 2007

By Greg Lindberg

Microsoft Word 2007 is a word processor application that allows you to create several types of documents, including essays, forms, greeting cards, posters, surveys and more. Using the Developer tools, you can easily create a survey document that you can then print and distribute. Make sure that you have your information prepared before you begin to create the survey in your Word 2007 document.

Step 1

Open the Microsoft Word 2007 application on your computer. Click on the “Microsoft Office” button and then click on the “Word Options” button.

Step 2

Click on the “Popular” option and then select the “Developer” option. The Developer tab will then be added to the top Ribbon toolbar.

Step 3

Click within the Word 2007 document where you want the first checkbox for your survey to appear. Click on the “Developer” tab and then click on the “Design Mode” option.

Step 4

Click on the “Check Box Form Field” button and a checkbox will appear in your document. Enter the text you want for your survey question next to the checkbox.

Step 5

Click on the area next to your checkbox and add another checkbox if you have a question that may have multiple answers. Enter text above each checkbox for the heading, such as “Yes” and “No” for multiple answers.

Step 6

Continue adding more questions and checkboxes to complete you survey. Click on the “Microsoft Office” button and then click on the “Save” option to save the survey you created.
