How can I protect a document ?
There are a number of ways you can protect your documents:
Requiring a password when you open or modify a document
Opening the document as read-only recommendation.
Prevent users from changing forms
Only allowing comments and changes which are tracked.
Protecting the formatting elements of a document
Adding a digital signature to your VBA project.
Once you have finished your document you can:

2) Restrict editing only to authorised users
