My question concerns dropdown lists in a Word document. The doc,
which will be distributed to the offices, has a dropdown list for offices
(London, Paris, etc.) and a second one for those in each office who can
authorize a request. Currently, the second list contains all the names,
organized by office (e.g. LONDON Puck, Titania, Oberon, Iolanthe; PARIS
Cassat, Degas, Morisot). Although there are not many at each office (no
more than five), there are twelve offices and the list will be long. I
would like to be able to coordinate the dropdown boxes so that if London is
the choice for dropdown1, then only "Puck, Titania, Oberon, Iolanthe"
appear in dropdown2; if Paris, then only "Cassat, Degas, Morisot" appear.

I know enough to recognize that this would be a select case structure,
but I don't know how to modify the form field code (previous attempts have
been unsuccessful) or how to write the code and then attach it to the doc.
I feel an attack of "you really should learn VBA" coming, but in the
meantime, I would appreciate any help. The dropdown lists as they stand
are functional and simple to use, but I would rather have a less cumbersome
list of people as long as the solution does not complicate life for the

Thank you. I will be cross-posting this message, so some may receive it
