    Ok an update - I cleaned it up a little by removing the text boxes and putting in book marks. I also andded code to check the check boxes...It looks like this: (Note it's all dynamic from a database)

    Doc.Bookmarks(rField!strformfield).Range.Text = rst!strField

    Doc.FormFields(rField!strFormField).checkbox.value = true

    I would love though to know how to get the formfields to edit the textbox
