Setting Password on Word and Excel Documents

It is very simple to add password to a Microsoft Word or Microsoft Excel file. I'm here describing password protection by encrypting documents in Office 2007

Open the Microsoft Word file that you want to protect by password. Then click on Office button, click prepare and then click encrypt document

Now a small window will appear, type password and then confirm password. That's it. You have successfully created a password protected file.

Same procedure is for Excel.

Now to verify that file is protected, close Office Word and then open the file by double clicking or from Word, open file dialog box, you will see that MS Word is asking for a password!
