Default Document Protection

If using Microsoft Office 2003, (shouldn't matter if Home, or pro. version)
If you go to protection, and choose to protect the document, and follow the
simple steps it should stop anyone that doesn't know the optional password,
from changing the content. (This includes footers.)

You should also make sure that your name comes up in the author properites
dialogue box.

To do this click FilePropertiesFind author and replace it with your Name,
and possibly position you hold at firm.

If you were working on a network, it would have by default said what the
administrators had set it to. (they MAY have decided to use your name or
username, but this is unlikely). When you save the document it will not be
replaced with the default again.

The protection way, is definately the most advisable.

Please reply with any questions you might have,
