I have a document that has some fields that i want to lock down, and some i need to remain open for editing.
How do I go about achieving this?
I know i can protect a document, but have only managed to protect all or nothing so far

sorry but that hasnt helped. I have mislead you saying that i have fields in the document, the fields are not actual word fields, more like areas of text. I tried reducing the number of styles that could be used but i would really like to lock some text boxes and tables into place. Is this possible?
