    Saving a form to quick parts gallery (2007 Word)

    I have a MSWord form which is protected; I can only fill in the fields. The form was created by a client and mailed to us as an attachment and I don't have the password to unprotect it.

    I would like to put the form into my Outlook 2007 Quick Parts Gallery but cannot "select all", the first step to adding text to Quick Parts.

    Any suggestions appreciated.

    In Word 2003 and earlier, there is a trick to stripping the document protection password. I don't know whether this works in Word 2007, but you could try it. Save the document as RTF, close the document, then open the RTF. When you use Unprotect (wherever it is now in the menus), the password should no longer be required.
