Found a new use for this old code utalizing application.filesearch. Trouble is this function is not available in MS Word 2007.   Quick 500 Points for a resolution.

Public Sub UnprotectBatch()

' Created 01/05/2004
' RESULT: Files found in the search are Unprotected
flocation = InputBox("Enter full path for the files to unprotect.", "Batch Unprotection")
If flocation = "" Then Exit Sub
Application.ScreenUpdating = False
Set fs = Application.FileSearch
    With fs
        .LookIn = flocation
        .SearchSubFolders = False
        .FileName = "*.doc"
        If .Execute() > 0 Then
            For i = 1 To .FoundFiles.Count
                Documents.Open fs.FoundFiles(i)
                On Error Resume Next
                ActiveDocument.Unprotect Password:="tbd"
                ActiveDocument.Save
                ActiveDocument.Close
            Next i
        Else
            MsgBox "There are no MS Word files found in the location specified."
