Locking Word Cells

By Bradley.Shorrock ·
I have a word document that has a table in it as well as free text. We need to send this to other users to fill in but we want certain parts locked down so that they cannot change the details. Could someone please advise if this is possible.

Divide the page by putting Continuous Section Breaks before and after the area you want to protect.( Insert>Break )
Go to Tools>Protect Document and choose Forms.
Now click the Sections button and leave the check mark for the area you want protected.

Another way is to embed an Excel spreadsheet and using Format>Cell Protection, unlock the cell you want to allow changes and then protect the spreadsheet.
This might not look as good as the above technique.
