Hi guys!
Someone asked me to make one of their Word docs a template. I saved it as a template (.dot) file. We are using Word 97 in Win 98, by the way. Is there a way to protect the template wording in a way that when someone opens it they can only add text in appropriate fields, but not delete template text. As it is right now, when the template is opened, you can delete the text that is part of the template. If I password protect the document, you can't add anything in the fields. It isn't a major issue, just something I was curious about.

Thanks,

LOL. Do you know that I created www.thewordexpert.com strictly to answer questions like this?

I'm phasing that web out though...all the info that is there is also at the new one.

:D

Yeah, that is a great info site too. Why didn't I check it first, you ask? I don't have a good answer for you on that one!

LOL. Don't get used to that site. It's going away as soon as the hosting comes up for billing again.
