    Locking a Style (Word 2000 SR-1)

    Howdy
    I have a Word form with form fields that is protected. However, some users would like to edit the actual text of the form. I have a macro that will unprotect the form and reprotect it without resetting the fields. My question is there a way I could force any changes made to the actual text? I do not want to use Track Changes, but I would like to force the edited text to be navy. Is there any way I can force this?

    There isn't a way to do this natively but you could do a macro to achieve the same effect.

    It would probably be easiest to do by using the revision tracking when the form is unprotected and then when the user runs your macro to reprotect the form, your new macro kicks in first to accept all revisions but marks them with a colour first.

    This way you will end up with a document that doesn't have revisions tracked but does show the additions. It could also show the deletions if that is useful.
