I've just recently retrieved my word files which are encrypted with password after it has been reformatted, now when I opened it, it says "word cannot open the document: user does not have access privileges". Can someone help me with this? Does the formatting has something to do with this?

This is so hard for you because you have not any permission to edit the file. So your computer shown a message in front as an alert like "word cannot open the document: user does not have access privileges". You must have the same authorization that is required to save the file. But there is a great difference when you retrieve your word document it wasn’t the same label. One of the solutions there is present. Just be a proper admin again to edit the file.

Follow the instruction proper from below:

Log on as an admin >> right click on it >> Click on property >> security >> edit permissions and allow modification.

Usually, when we get the error message “Word cannot open the document: user does not have access privileges”, it could be for a lot of reasons. Sometimes, the password might have been forgotten, and there are times that the file might have been corrupted. In these cases, the user will have to take ownership of the file to have this matter resolved.

There are 2 ways to take ownership of the said file to gain access to it again. You can download the Word Repair in case that the file might have been corrupted without you knowing it.
