Anyone familiar with Word Templates/Forms?

I've got a document that I am saving as a Form. I have specific fields that can be filled in, but I want to lock the document so the rest of it can't be modified by the user (it's a contract). Is there any way that I can have them fill in one field and then have it automatically populate certain other fields in the document? I suppose theoretically a macro could be recorded and run to do this, but I'm a bit lost in this format.

I know this is a long shot, but I'm stymied.

Damn you, Bill Gates! Why can't your stupid programs just do what I want them to do?

Thanks for the tip--I'm aware of the locking. My question is actually:

Is there any way that I can have them fill in one field and then have it automatically populate certain other fields in the document?

If you lock it, the user can't Find/Replace...so I'm trying to find a way that they fill in the one field and it populates the other fields I specify at the same time..
