Word Template - locking document RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a word template that I only need to update certain fields, so i have locked the document to do this, but i also have a header that needs to updated each time.  But since doc is locked i can not update header, is there a way to do this with out un-locking the doc each time?

  • What kind of fields are you using? Legacy form fields? Other fields?

    As my experience, if you protect word document, you cannot pass the verification to edit the document.

    Best regards.

  • Hello,

    As far as I know both locking and unlocking is not possible at the same time.
