Word: Editing a Password-Protected Document


First of all – this tip is NOT about being open a Word document that is locked via a PASSWORD-TO-OPEN password. If you’ve lost that password – you are out of luck.


This tip is about how to remove the password from a FILL-IN FORM that you’ve created and locked (FOR EDITING) but forgotten the password (or the employee has left the company, etc.)


It’s a lot of steps – but those of you who have been faced with the daunting task of recreating a fill-in form will appreciate that it’s still fewer steps than starting from scratch.
