Hey Guys! My question surrounds the security of Office files. Is there any way to lock the Office 2007 files. 1) Tell me how to lock files for editing (I mean file could be opened for reading purpose but can not be edited) 2) How to apply password on files so that it can not be even opened for reading. I really need guidance on these steps. Please help me.Thanks in advance

Hi,

Try this:
  • Open Word.
  • Click on Tools -> Options.
  • Click on the Security tab.
  • Under Security tab are two options:
    Password to open - this will put a password on your document, preventing someone fom opening it without the necessary password.
    Password to modify - this will put a password on your document, preventing someone fom editing it without the necessary password.
Hope this helps. :)

Just re-read the post. It is for Office 2007. What I've posted was for 2003.

For Office 2007 (.doc .xls and .ppt files).:
  • Click Microsoft Office Button -> Save As.
  • Click on Tools -> General Options.
  • Under General Options:
    Password to open - this will put a password on your document, preventing someone fom opening it without the necessary password.
    Password to modify - this will put a password on your document, preventing someone fom editing it without the necessary password.
  • Click OK.
