    Locking Styles (VBA/Word/2003 SP2)

    In a template which is distributed to users, i have several styles which I want to protect against change. I don't believe that it is possible directly in Word; however there must be some way of hijacking the style modification process in VBA.

    Does anyone have experience or thoughts in this area?

    T.I.A.

    I thought that the Word 2003 security allowed you to secure the styles but that anyone opening the files in an earlier version would circumvent the security.

    I don't have a solution but a simple resolution of reapplying the template works for most people.
