Word Doc opening in design mode. Please make it stop!!
Posted on 2006-11-05
I have inherited a Word Doc that I've converted into a survey form. It was originally made to be printed so it had pictures of radio buttons vs real ones. I replaced all of the pictures with actual radio buttons from the toolbox. I want the document to open so that the user cannot edit any of the questions and only allow them to check the radio buttons. At the moment, each time I open the document, it opens in design mode. I've tried to open the Forms toolbar and lock the document, but that secured everything and you can't click on anything. I've tried to disable the Edit menu using code, but it still hasn't fixed my problem.
I want to try to avoid using passwords. I want the document to open normally (not in edit mode) and only allow my users to click the radio buttons and save.
Any help is GREATLY appreciated.
