    Protection (Office 2003 in W2K PE)

    Certain websites, like newspapers international editions, feature a protection according to which it is not possible to highlight a paragraph and ^C to ^V into other document. it is either you have to fwd mail the WHOLE article or the url link.
    In my work for my clients, I generate reports of my results (must use MS Word, I also have Acrobat 6.0 , but they don't accept it), and would like to incorporate to the docs I issue this type of feature.
    Although I always submit docs password protected, this doesn't preclude from someone to select certain portions to paste elsewhere. Going through the protection settings I didn't find anything like this (perhaps I don't know where to look for it).
    Am I clear enough in explaining what I want? Does anybody know if it is possible to achieve in MS Word 2003?
    Thanks a lot in advance.

    Daniel Rozenberg.

    You can protect your document for forms; users won't be able to select text in the document any more.
    - Select Tools | Protect Document...
    - The Protect Document task pane appears.
    - In the Editing restrictions section, from the Allow only this type of editing in the document pull-down list, select Filling in forms
    - From the Start enforcement section, click YES, START ENFORCING PROTECTION
    - The Start Enforcing Protection dialog box appears.
    - In the Enter new password text box, type a password.
    - In the Reenter password to confirm text box, type the same password.
    - Click OK.

    This feature is ordinarily used in a document that contains form fields from the Forms toolbar; they are the only elements that will remain available to the user in a document protected for forms. It is also possible to protect specific sections of the document, and to leave other sections unprotected.
