I added few text boxes to a MS Word ( version 9) document. When I scroll the document, the text boxes doesn't appear to be scrolling. But when I stop scrolling, the text boxes are in proper place. If it is big document and if I am searching for something by moving up and down with scroll bars, it looks really messy. Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

Unfortunately I have no answers for you but I just wanted to say I have the same problem as well. Did you by any chance solve your problem yet? Please let me know if you did. Thanks!

I've searched this forum and the MSDN database extensively for the solution to this problem. I guess I've found the answer, although it's not what I wanted to hear. here's a quote from this article: http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp?url=/library/en-us/dnword2k2/html/odc_activex.asp
"Word cannot always display them (control objects) correctly on-screen, especially when the document is being scrolled. Among other things, they will appear to not move on the screen until the mouse button is released. As a rule of thumb, the older the version of Word, the greater the problems."
I've emailed the author of the article in hopes she has discovered any answers since the publication of that article. I'll keep you posted
