I am facing a problem with MS Word documents having form fields in the document. I am able to open the document in OpenOffice Writer and could save the document in MS Word format. When I open the document that contains form fields and is saved in OpenOffice Writer in MS Word Format, I noticed that form fileds are missing. Please suggest what to do to retain form fileds even if I save the document in OpenOffice Writer.

The mechanism of creating forms under Writer is completely different from the mechanism in Word. In other words, the Word forms are not known by Writer. Hence the message is: if you need to create forms, you need to stick to only one of these word processors.
