    'Submit' button

    I have a Word form where fields have been created using Developer content controls (some fields are 'required'). Could someone please advise a block of VBA code that would disable the Submit button, and show a message box, pending completion of previously unfilled 'required' fields, and thereafter e-mailing the form from any e-mail client.

    My understanding of VBA code is at novice level.

    Any assistance would be appreciated.

    Not sure what you tried, but the following should work. It assumes your button is CommandButton1
    Change the titles of the controls to check as required

    Private Sub CommandButton1_Click()
    Dim oCC As ContentControl
        For Each oCC In ActiveDocument.ContentControls
            Select Case oCC.Title
                Case "Field 1 Title", "Field 2 Title"   'The titles of the required controls separated by commas
                    If oCC.ShowingPlaceholderText = True Then
                        MsgBox "Complete the field", vbCritical
                        Exit Sub
                    End If
                Case Else
            End Select
        Next oCC
        'rest of submit button code goes here
    End Sub
