    Re: Partial protection ... (Word 2003)

    Create the following macro in a module in the template:

    Sub ProtectDoc()
    ActiveDocument.Protect Type:=wdAllowOnlyFormFields, NoReset:=True
    End Sub

    Then switch back to Word.

    Select Tools | Customize...
    Activate the Commands tab.
    Make sure that your template is selected in the 'Save in' dropdown list.
    Select Macros in the list of Categories on the left.
    Select ProtectDoc in the list of Commands on the right (it will look like Project.Module1.ProtectDoc or similar)
    Drag it to a convenient location on a toolbar.
    Right-click the new toolbar button to change its name, icon etc.

    If you want a keyboard shortcut in addtion to or instead of a toolbar button:
    Click the Keyboard... button in the Customize dialog.
    Again, make sure that your template is selected in the 'Save changes in' dropdown list.
    Select Macros in the list of Categories on the left.
    Select ProtectDoc in the list of Commands on the right (this time. you'll just see the macro name)
    Click in the 'Press new shortcut key' box.
    Press the desired keystroke combination (something with Ctrl and/or Alt).
    You'll see whether the keystroke is already assigned to something else.
    You can decide to override the existing assignment, or clear the box and try another one.
    Click Assign to store the keystroke assignment.
    Click Close to return to the Customize dialog.
    Click Close to return to Word.
