restricting access to documents



  • 1. Check boxes and Bookmarks
    Hi all, I'm afraid i may be being a bit dense here but i am trying to create a form that has a series of check boxes included. What i would like to happen is if a user checks one box it will lead them off to one part of the document (i am assuming it is best to identify it using bookmarks) and if they check another box it leads them off to another part of the document. I have managed to do this in Acrobat using links, but i cannot seem to be able to do it in Word. Do i need to create a macro and apply it to the checkbox? if so, how do i go about it? Many thanks in advance for any assistance, Andy
  • 2. Multiple reviewers - one computer? Any idea how to do this?
    Thanks Daiya, That was it exactly - both accounts for some reason (ie I did not change it) had the same user info. Worked like a charm. thanks again, Neil
  • 3. Stability problems when using mic
    So Word constantly locks up and freezes randomly when I'm recoding audio, anyone heard of this? I'm fairly sure the problem is related to the recording as I've had issues with it since I started using it. Now that I've stopped my stability has become dependable again. Other issues which I believe are related are stop recording (and and loss of recording) randomly, as well as if recording in more than one session sometimes the new recording completely overwrites the old one. I've very interested in resolving this as being able to record while typing is extremely valuble and one of the reasons I went Mac.

Without any specific indication of what you mean by "restrict access" it's
impossible to give you a direct answer... That's a very vague term. If you
take the few seconds necessary to describe what you want to do you're more
likely to get a reasonable suggestion about how to do it.

You are asking in the newsgroup for Word for Mac  Better to ask in Excel 

That being said, open in Excel, Menu: File/Save As, press the Options 
button and from there self-explanatory.

This can be found in "help" for Excel by searching for the word "password".

5.restricted access

This morning I tried to open a Word document I created yesterday. All icons 
are gray, and I cannot edit the document. Across the bottom it says "This 
document is locked." I tried to then open another file in Powerpoint. The 
same thing happened. I created these documents, though, so I should have 
access to them. Additionally, I cannot create any new documents in any MS 
Office product. I tried everything from checking my permissions to 
unrestricting access. I cannot get anything to work. Does anyone have any 
ideas on how to unblock whatever restricted access has been created in all my 
MS Office products?
