Open Office and input fields.
 
I am not sure if this is the correct place, if it isn't, please forgive me.

Using Open Office, Libre. . .

I have a form, and I would like to have that form allow the user to input different data into a field. . .

I would like the form to be a generic letter, and the operator will input their name, their problems, and when it is done, it will save it, so that it can be Emailed.

I can't figure out how to make the form allow a operators input. I will probably try to save it as some kind of "template" so that we can just "Call up" the Template, put in the data where the fields are, and Email it.

Can someone help me here? I seem to have found everything but what I am looking for.

Dwayne

You're welcome. Glad I could help.

I can't remember my exact search string, but the word "forms" was in it.

The google-fu was strong in me.
