Tips to using this form:
   o The form is read-only, you will only be able to enter text in yellow colored cells.

   o To type text in a yellow cell, simply double-click in that specific cell. Please note, if you do not double click in a cell before adding text,
     that cell may become white and locked. If this happens, simply undo by pressing CTRL+Z or in the "Edit" menu and select "Undo".

   o To start a new line of text at a specific point in a cell, click where you want to break the line, and then press ALT+ENTER.

   o If all wrapped text is not visible in a yellow cell, it is because the row is set to a specific height. To allow the row to adjust automatically and show all
     wrapped text, point to "Row" on the "Format" menu, and then click "AutoFit".
