Command to ignore/disable save command in Word (2003)

I want to be able to run macro that will prevent the save option being available in word (2003) - until I enable it again.

Is there an "on save " event or something similar?

Or another method?

Thanks Lou

Hi!
Is it not enough to create a password for not read-only access (tools/options/security)?
This will guide in disabling the menu item:

Hello Nizzek,

No this is not sufficient as the document is a form ans I want to disable save if all the fields have not been completed. If they have I want save to be available.

Thanks Lou

The problem that you will have is that there are many Save events available and you will have to hijack all of them.

FileSave
FileSaveAll
FileSaveAs
FileSaveAsOtherFormats
FileSaveAsWebPage
etc.

Sub FileSaveAs()
 
If ActiveDocument.FormFields("txtUserName").Result = "" Then
    Exit Sub
Else
    Application.Dialogs(wdDialogFileSaveAs).Show
End If
End Sub

Open in new window
