Hi All,

I am trying to protect the contents of the header only in MS Word 2003. I have field in there that are written to by a document management system and I want to prevent users editing them!

I have tried different approaches including one from Microsoft entitled specifically for this matter.

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/888184

My problem is that whichever approach I take using the inbuilt 'Protect Document' I can then only edit the text in the body of the document. I cannot insert tables, text boxes, word art etc.....its all greyed out?

Am I doing something wrong? I just want to protect the header and have normal (full) functionality in the body.

Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

Regards

Paul
