Subject:R/W Permissions for Word Master Doc From:John Hacunda <jhacunda -at- IDS -dot- NET> Date:Mon, 3 Jun 1996 09:10:21 -0500
Does anyone know how to change the read/write permissions globally on
a master document created using Word 6.0?
It seems that only the creator of the master document and subdocuments
has read/write permission. Others must manually "unlock" the master
document and each subdocument so that they can make edits or reformatting
Thanks for any assistance.
