Hi, i have a word document (attached) that seems to be locked. I can't edit the document and when i try to unlock it by stopping the protection (Word 2007:: Developer tab --> Protect Document --> Stop Protection) it prompts me for a password. Is there a way of getting this password so that i can Stop the Protection and start editing the document,

thanks in advance
