I have a Word 2007 document that will not allow me to make any corrections. When I left click on the area where the correction is needed, it automatically jumps to a fill-in form at the end of the document.
This Word document has been protected to only allow filling in form fields. You must have the password to remove protection and edit the form.
The editing controls for Microsoft Word forms are not shown in the ribbon by default, so you have to activate the Developer tab to use them.
To show the Developer tab, do the following:
To remove the password and allow editing, follow these steps:
If you need to edit the actual form fields, in the Controls group, click Design Mode. When finished editing form fields, click Design Mode again to deselect it. (You will not be able to password protect the form if it is in Design Mode.)
Now you can edit the document as needed. Don't forget to put the password protection back in place after you edit, otherwise some form fields may not work properly and other users will be able to change the form.
