Word is a great application to use for putting together many different types of documents Imagine this though – you have just spent hours upon hours putting together the your document only to find out that another user has come along and made some undesirable changes to it.
Fortunately you can prevent this from happening in Word 2007 by password protecting your documents. If you use passwords, you have two different options. You can require a password to open the document and/or you can require a password to make any changes to it.
To configure a password, open your Word document and click Options from the Tools menu. Click the Security tab. You’ll see there are two options available: Password to open and Password to modify. To use either one, simply type a password into the field. Click OK to save your changes.
