    Unprotect Doc (Word 2003)

    I have some vba code that will unprotect an excel spreadsheet. Is there somthing similar for unprotecting a word doc?

    Googling around, I found 65,127 referenes to saving as HTML or RTF and then saving back to doc, blah, blah. This doesn't work for me, the doc I have, has lots of formatting and charts and tables, etc. This gets messed up pretty good when converting to other formats...

    I am trying to remove password protection for a fill-in-the-blank document so I can make changes. The original author is longer with the company and the form needs to be changed. Advice? I could start from scratch but just a few cosmetic tweaks and date changes and the current form will continue to be useful.

    Create a blank new document.
    Select Insert | File...
    Browse to the document, then click Insert.
    You'll have the unprotected form document on your hands.
