Oh dear, why is it so difficult to explain my question?
First of all, I can read the MS guides and I did read the MS guides. On top of it, I can press the F1 key too. I am already familiar with the steps that the help files provide.
My question has to do with an issue that is NOT addressed in the MS guides/help files/documents, at least not in the ones that I could find.
Let me try again.
When a form designer designs a form, the form is protected from being changed by a user (a user can only fill in the fields) Let's call this the first type of protection.
An ordinary MS Word document can be protected so that a password XXXXX XXXXX to open the document. Let's call this the second type of protection.
My question is thus, can the second type of protection be added on top of the first type of protection? Are the two types of protection compatible? Where in the MS knowledge base is this compatibility documented?
The reason I ask is that I don't want to spend the effort designing a form, only to discover that a user cannot protect the filled in form with a user defined password. Or discover that hidden problems pop up with a feature that is not expressly supported by MS.
Thank you for the patience!
