    I am making a catalogue in MS Word which I will be sending to different clients.
    How do i save it in such a way that the recepients will only be able to read and not alter the document?

    Any input would be GREATLY appreciated.

    What version of MS Word do you have? If it is 2003 you will go to "Tools">>"Protect Document" from the menu bar.

    Or maybe convert it to PDF. There are a number of free programs to do that.

    That is true as well. ;) If you do convert it to a pdf I would want you to verify everything converted over well.
