Unprotect Part of a Form in MS Word

Dennis Faas's picture

A reader recently wrote and asked how she could protect sections where a form appeared in one section. She has MS Word 2003 and wants to have part of a document as a form which would be locked and the rest of the document able to be edited.

My Reply:

It is absolutely possible to accomplish this task in MS Word. Follow the steps below:

  1. Place a section break before and after the part that you want to protect.
  2. In the Protect Document task pane, after you select Filling in forms in the Editing Restrictions area, a Selected sections link will appear below that dropdown.
  3. Click that and uncheck any sections that you do not want to protect.

That's all there is to it!
