Powerpoint Password Protect

  Chubbington 21:11 30 Jun 2003

In Office 2000 version of powerpoint can you put in a password to open documents. I thought it would be under Tools/Options as in Word, but it doesn't seem to be there. Is it somewhere else?

Tools/Options, Security tab -- or it should be.

As VoG says in XP its there so I guess it will be in 2000.

Mine doesn't have a 'Security tab' under Tools/Options. There's a kind of gap where you'd expect to see the folder heading on the right hand edge next to 'Spelling and style'. Is that where it is/should be? Is there any way it could've not been loaded? Seems odd.

I have Powerpoint 2002 and assumed that it would be in the same place.

I guess that the workaround would be to create a VBA macro called Auto_Open and password protect it.

I have been looking through the Microsoft Office 2000 reference manual and there's nothing mentioned about passwords for Powerpoint, Rtus's post confirms it. Sorry.
