I just started using office 2007 and I am having a problem with a document created in word 2000. I have a document that has form fields that when I use it I tab through the various form fields filling out the information and when done with that I un-protect the document (previously I had put a "protect form" button in the tool bar). In word 2007 it seems to be a more drawn out process. Is there any way to just add a protect form button again and make this a one step process? Thanks in advance!

You could surely record a macro and assign a button to the macro, no? Alternatively, see if you can't find the menu command to protect under customizing toolbars (Tools-->Customize in 2003)

tried to record a macro but it did not work because the document had to be in the unprotected state to record but when I am in that mode the stop protection option is not available. If you haven't worked with word 2007 it is a lot different than previous versions.
