select Activate Product from the Help menu.

Well, you need to activate the product. If it's Word 2003, use Help |
Activate Product. If it's 2007, use Office Button | Word Options |
Resources: activate Microsoft Office.

So how do we resolve this then? I think my case is the latter one --
"a
retail version, it has not been activated and has now exceeded the
number
of
times it can be used before activation is required."
Please do respond, i badly need your help here ASAP! I might need a
step-by-step guide on how to unlock it. Thanks a lot...

The usual reason for this is that the application has gone into
"reduced
functionality" mode. Either it is a trial version that has expired,
or,
if a
retail version, it has not been activated and has now exceeded the
number
of
times it can be used before activation is required.

If this only happens in one particular document, try opening that
document and clicking on Tools | Unprotect Document.

If all new and existing documents are locked for editing, then
it's probably because you have not activated your Word/Office
software, or because you have an expired trial version of Office
2003. What happens if you start Word and click on Help |
Activate Product? If you are already activated, a dialog box
saying so will appear. If you are not activated, the Activation
Wizard will start. If you have an expired trial version, a
dialog box will prompt you to enter a valid product key or
purchase a key online.

You have either not activated your copy of Office or (more likely), you have
a trial version that has expired.
