    Security Settings for Global Template (Word 03)

    First post after many, many years of lurking & learning. A heartfelt thank you to all the gurus who give of their time and experience. This place is better than a school!

    I have a Global Template in a folder on a server. Users are mapped to this folder so that the template loads when they open Word. Is it possible to adjust the security settings for this folder so that the startup loading works, but users can NOT copy the template?

    Thanks

    A belated welcome!

    What you want cannot be done using standard security settings - if a user can access a file, he or she can copy it to another location. You'd need special security software that sits between the server and the user and monitors file transfers. See Prevent copying files from shared folders to remote computers.
