I do apologize for having three posts with the same content. But MR has been flaky and my other two posts got eaten by the system.... I have a word document that is password protected to changes. i can open it, enter text in the text fields, print, etc. but I cannot change the actual document. I have tried save as, copy and paste and no luck. I have about 100 of these forms, all inherited from a staff member who retired and no one knows the password. i do not like the idea of recreating all of these just to update a few contact names and emails. Is there a hack or utility to means to by pass a Protected document with a password?
