Chapter 25. Creating Forms > Protecting an Entire Form

Protecting an Entire Form

Word gives you extremely tight control over the changes that can be made to a form. When you protect a template, a user can't make any changes in documents based on that template, except where you've inserted form fields. In fact, a form doesn't behave like a form until you protect it.

When you protect a form, some form fields that provide specific information can't be changed either. In a text form field that makes a calculation, for example, the user can't override the calculation. And, as you've seen, unchecking the Enabled check box in the Options dialog box also prevents a user from making changes in that field.
