How to Protect Microsoft Office Documents


Hi Jeff, if you want to lock a files in MS Office Application, you can use the Password Protect functions, located in the saving point of your MS Office Applications. Here's how to do it (I'm using MS Word 2007): 

1. On the Office button of your Window hit "Save" or "Save" AS if it is saved already. On the Save As or Save command box, click "Tools" button then "General Options.

2: On the General Option command box, type desired password to open and modify.

3. Click "OK" button.

4. It will then ask you to reenter the password to open/modify.

After this, every time you open the file it will ask password first. In this way no one can modify or read your files unless given the password you set forth. I hope this will help you in any ways. ^^,
