Hi Ian,

This is getting quite intriguing.  Any other Beta testers tried this
yet?

If I try to open a password protected Word 2003 document in any of my
three flavours of DBT, I get a 714 error.

However, if I open the document in Word, and then use the current
version of SWIFT (The one which maintains multiple .mws files) it comes
into DBT OK, which is, to a large extent, what I would expect, or at
least hope for.

Why YOU have the problem is a mystery.  (And bear in mind I have the
advantage of an XP Home and Pro system, side by side here.)

What I guess we might also have to look at (but after 10.5 please!) is
The Information Rights Management Service.  That should give programmers
a mild migraine.

All the best,

George.

Hi George,

I only get "Error 714" if the document is sent to DBT via SWIFT.  When
using DBTs File Open dialogue, the application hangs.

BTW: "Error 714" is a DBT message.

Cheers.

Ian
