    Hi. I am wanting to know how I can password protect my Word XP documents. I tried doing this by going into the Tools menu and selecting Options and then going to Security and modifying the password thing in there. I also chose to protect the document. I did give it a password. However, when I closed the document and reopened it to make sure it was working, it did not ask me for a password. In fact, I didn't even need a password to save the document! Someone Please help!

    When you save a file, Click File | Save As
    In the Save Applet that appears , Click Tools | Security Options
    Choose your options
    Click OK

    Make sure you put the password in the "password to open" box, NOT the "password to modify" box.

    Hi. I tried everything that you guys have told me to try. It still will not work? Any suggestions? Oh yeah, I was just wondering, if there are any programs out there that are freeware that will do this same job, those will be welcome for me to use also.
