Default Is there a way to lock the margins in Word?

Hello, I've created an electronic version of the company stationary and I'd
like to lock the margins so they cannot inadvertently be altered to invade
the white space of the corporate logo that resides in the left hand margin
mid-way down the page. If there is no way of locking the margins - is there
any way of allowing the end user to edit the body of the document only and
not touch the margins, headers, footers?

Hi Deirdre,

You could insert a macro like the following into the document's template:

Private Sub FilePageSetup()
MsgBox "Sorry, that option is not allowed with this document", vbExclamation
End Sub

The above macro intercepts the FilePageSetup action.

But it probably wouldn't prevent users from dragging the margin markers on
the ruler.

If you put the logo in the header view of the pages on which it is supposed
to appear in a borderless text box that occupies the full height of the page
and set the wrap of that text box to 'square', then even if the users
changed the margin, the text would not invade the space occupied by the text
box.

Hi Suzanne,

True. I suppose one could use a macro that taps into the DocumentBeforePrint event to force the page setup back to what it's
supposed to be. That'd fix 'em.
