Category: Word: VBA   


Not sure if this is possible but currently I have a word file(Macro Enable) that give you options to type in a password to allow you to edit it or open with as read only version plus on top of that it has some VBA coding to disable printing of the document. Now question is there a way that I can remove the VBA coding from the edit version and keep only for the read-only version? I have attached an example of the file to this post. Just wondering if that is even possible or not and any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks

There is no 'read-only' version of your file that is not also the 'edit' version - there is only one file that can be opened in either of two modes.

That said, you can easily delete the macro from the file by saving it in the docx format. That will give you two files, though...
