Probs with password protect Word 97 docs & XP Pro?

  farnaby 13:53 10 Apr 2003

Dear esteemed Helproom gurus ..
I have encountered a problem where password protected documents (preventing users making any alterations) which have been created in Word '97, cannot be "read-only" viewed when opened by Word ('97) on an XP Pro machine? There is no problem encountered in opening up the same document on say, a Windows '98 machine, using the same application (MS Professional Office '97). When one clicks on the "read-only" button to view the document - nothing happens other than a blank page is displayed ..
Any ideas (other than upgrading Office '97)?
Many thanks
