The subroutine CheckProtectedSection is located a little farther down on
the page. You'll need to paste in all the subroutines listed there, as
some are, like this one, called from other subs.

You can lock only the section with the formfields in it by using Tools >
Protect Document rather than the padlock button on the Forms toolbar.
When you choose Forms from the Protect Document dialog box, you'll be
able to click the Sections button, and check which sections you do or
don't want protected.

Thanks for the tip. In the past, I've had difficulty with template
macros working across the various platforms used by our organization.
But I'm willing to try. I tried it today: I couldn't get it to work.

I created the macro by pasting in the code at the link you provided, In
my .doc test, I received a popup with the message, "Compile error: Sub
or Function not defined" and the VB editor displayed the following as
highlighted: "Call CheckProtectedSection".

I only have 8 form fields in one table, one field is a dropdown, all in
one section. In the template, I protected via the forms toolbar.

I will probably not use the form feature, and try to figure out how to
use checkboxes in place of the dropdown selection. But I am curious why
the macro doesn't work. Any idears?
