There is a WORD document (a questionnaire) that accepts user input and is saved on my company's network drive for people to access it. The problem is that it currently allows editing and saving (on the network drive) so that someone can mess up the source document.  What people should be doing is copying the questionnaire onto their local drive and then edit and save it there (or something along those lines) so that they don't mess up the source version.

How can I modify the document on the network drive so that it cannot be overwritten?
