I created a doc in Word 2007 which includes check boxes using Active X objects. When I re-open the doc, it always opens in Designer Mode. This isn't going to be much good to those I give the form to who need it to make entries, not design! :)

Can't find a work-around....

P.S. Wanted to attached file (.docm) but EE wouldn't let me attach a .docm file. :(

PERFECT. Works like a charm.

To help others find the padlock in Word 2007:

Go to Office button > Word Options > Customize.
Select the category of All Commands.
Select the Lock command, and click the Add button in the middle of the dialog.
Click OK.

The Lock icon will now appear on the Quick Access Toolbar.
