    SBS 2003 and Word 2000 Password protect issue

    I have a windows 98 machine that logs into a SBS 2003. The word file I am trying to open is password protected. Here's the issue. When logged in as User1, the file open with the password dialog box as it is supposed to. When logged on as User2 on the same machine, the password dialog box never opens and the document opens with full access. Both users have identical rights on the server. Any help is appreciated.
    Thanks

    Are you logging off user1 then logon to user2 or are you re-booting then logging into user2? If the former there is a good chance that either Win98 or Word 2k is caching the password for the file. Are you fully patched on both Win98 & Word 2k?
