Hello experts:

I work a lot with Microsoft Word Documents and I was wondering how can I protect some important confidential documents with a passwords so they can be viewed only by the authorized persons using that password ?

Thanks in advance for your help.

Hello Fruit Bat:

Thanks a lot for making time to help me.

But being myself a newbie I don't even know where I can find the first steps of the process "Tools" and then "Options".

Where do I click to see those options ? should I recover the file I want to protect first and then begin the process ? or any other way to do it ?

Please tell me, please continue helping me.

All the best,
