    Disable Track Changes in Word (Word 2000)

    Hello everyone.

    I am a fairly new to VBA, but I have managed to disable the track changes dialog window depending on what kind of template is attached to my active document. This works great, but what I can't control is when the end-user double clicks the Track Changes Indicator on the Status bar. Can I create an event that responds to this action? I've tried to in a class module, but I keep getting an error message that the Status Bar cannot receive the focus.

    Any suggestions?

    Thank you,

    Kyle

    hi Kyle,

    create a sub with the same name of the word command:

    Sub ToolsRevisionMarksToggle()
    MsgBox "sorry, you cannot toggle the revisionmarks status!"
    End Sub

    here's the list of interceptable commands : http://www.mvps.org/word/FAQs/General/CommandsList.htm

    greetings,

    Is there a way to prevent users from accessing Tools|Track Changes and disabling the ability to uncheck Track Changes while editing?
    Thanks

    hi Kay,

    protect your document for track changes through the word menu tools->protect document->(track changes)

    Once again, thanks.
    The only issue is that I am trying to enable track changes when I unprotect form. I can't seem to unprotect the form protection without disabling Track changes.
