    I have created a document in Word 2003 with the header and footer protected from editing but with the main body being editable.

    This works fine in Word 2003 but anyone opening up the document in Word 2000 cannot edit anything!

    Is this just an incompatibilty issue or is there a solution?

    Thanks in advance,

    Peter

    The selective editing was put in the 2003 version and is incompatible from what I have seen with the 2000 version. Maybe one of our VBA experts knows how to lock the Header/Footer.

    Thanks. An alternative solution that will work in both 2000 & 2003 would be appreciated. I've done a little VBA but by no means an expert!

    Otherwise I'll just have to upgrade everyone :(
