in reply to create checkbox in word document

To answer your question with perl:
use strict; use Win32::OLE qw(in with); use Win32::OLE::Const 'Microsoft Word'; $Win32::OLE::Warn = 2; my $Word = Win32::OLE->GetActiveObject('Word.Application') || Win32::OLE->new('Word.Application', 'Quit'); $Word->{'Visible'} = 1; my $Doc = $Word->Documents->Add(); $Word->Selection->WholeStory; $Word->Selection->InlineShapes->AddOLEControl({ClassType=>'Forms.Ch +eckBox.1'});

You'll probably have to read the class documentation to get the names for the ClassTypes for OLEControls, but that's a good exercise for the reader.
