[access-uk] Re: creating a read only doc

Hi Barry,

Have you looked in Word's Tools menu, and "Protect

This is a somewhat more secure way of preventing people
making changes.

You could also consider going a step further, and adding
Passwords to documents.

George.

Barry, press alt enter on the file in My Computer/Windows
Explorer, and
check the "read-only" check box. Press enter to save your
setting. Hope that
helps.
